Popcorn, Anyone?

Popcorn, Anyone?The smell of popcorn filled the air in the sixth grade hallway. Ms.Schendel's and Mr.Finkbiner’s 6th grade science classes are learning how convection, conduction, and radiation work through different objects. Conduction is when heat or electricity is directly transmitted to an object or substance. Convection is when hot air rises to heat the object and cool air sinks. Radiation is when heat from the sun or a microwave in this instance, is radiated to the object.They used an electric stove to cook the popcorn for convection, a microwave to show radiation, and they used a conduction popper for conduction.
