Dr. Christopher Presents: Volume, Mass, Density, and
Science is fun!
Ready to do some science with your learners? Dr. Christopher presents complex and confusing concepts through a series of fun, hands-on, easy-to-understand experiments.
Her density experiment comes complete with a full video walkthrough, a toolkit including step-by-step instructions, and a list of (mostly common, household) supplies that are needed.
What is the difference between volume, mass, and density? Why is Boyle’s law important? And, what is a cartesian diver?

HEAR FROM OUR COMMUNITY
My son took your STEM program over the summer at Davenport University. It had lasting effects.
- He's doing good in school.
- He's still motivated about going to college.
- He's just interested in academics, now.
The program, I don't know what you did, magic, we're gonna call it or whatever it was but it worked with my child and I just want to say thank you from the bottom of our heart.
You made me believe I can go on and accomplish so much.
Dr. Christopher has been providing STEM to our 7th and 8th graders since before I started at the school. Our partnership has blossomed the last two years and has given our students a chance to look at options for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This has allowed students from black and brown communities to have exposure to those fields.
The beauty of STEM Greenhouse is that the students get to see someone who went to the same school, looks like them, and is successful! She brings her heart and knowledge to uplift the scholars at our school.
