The Burning Question

The Burning Question (35 minutes)

Presented as a television game show, The Burning Question investigates rates of combustion by asking: “What makes the loudest boom?” The show’s host and “special guest” scientist lead the audience through the steps of the scientific method in segments like “Vote your Prediction,” and “The Experiment Zone.”  The audience participates with call and response, Q&A, and physical dramatization.  Pre- and post-lesson assessment is embedded in the show.
