Mass Spectrometry Measuring the Building Blocks of Matter YR5-8  

This fully interactive presentation will introduce young students to the scientific concepts associated with the analytical technique of Mass Spectrometry:  that all matter in our world is comprised of building blocks called atoms that join together to form molecules; that molecules of different mass can be moved and separated; 
and that unknown charged molecules can be detected.  

The aims include developing enquiring minds and a scientific approach to problem solving as well as applying science to everyday life.
