Requirements

Learn to talk about the idea of energy. Start by defining energy and investigating differences between potential and kinetic energy. Then explore energy transfer and energy conservation. Finally, connect energy to charges and atomic structure of matter. This investigation builds toward NGSS PEs: MS-PS3-5, MS-PS1-4, and HS-PS3-2.
