As you make your molecules, try to find patterns between bonds to better understand how certain elements interact with one another. Pay attention to the names of molecules as well.
Jason Hammond is the A’STEAM manager at the Children’s Museum Houston. A’STEAM (Afterschool Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts Design, Mathematics) is a program developed in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Houston to provide weekly science activities to after school children throughout the Houston area and beyond. During the summer the partnership continues with Summer of Learning – a program that provides weekly science activities to children enrolled in YMCA summer camps. Jason and his team at the Children’s Museum also create activities for YMCA summer camps at Camp Cullen, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto and Camp Adventure, a summer camp program for Houston’s disadvantaged youth.
During the stay at home order, Jason has been busy providing educator moments and story times that can be seen on the Children’s Museum Houston Instagram, Facebook and YouTube channels, providing updated curriculum for the Children’s Museum web page, creating daily fun activities for families that have limited access to internet, and overseeing the creation of science kits for centers providing day care services to essential workers and science bags for individual families.
