Building a Successful Middle School Outreach Effort: Microscopy Camp  R. Lee Penn, Leslie Flynn, and Page Johnson
Microscopy Camp is a middle school outreach program designed to introduce and reinforce concepts regarding the atomic structure of crystals. Students synthesize magnetite nanoparticles and characterize them using light, scanning electron, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy.

Classifying Matter: A Physical Model Using Paper Clips  Bob Blake, Lynn Hogue, and Jerry L. Sarquis
By using colored paper clips, students can represent pure substances, mixtures, elements, and compounds and then discuss their similarities and differences. This model is advantageous for the beginning student who would not know enough about the detailed composition of simple materials like milk, brass, sand, and air to classify them properly.

A Demonstration of Refractive Index Matching Using Isopropyl Alcohol and MgF2  Frederick C. Sauls
Isopropyl alcohol and magnesium fluoride have nearly identical refractive indices; thus a chip of MgF2 disappears when immersed in isopropanol.

Float or Sink  
It is wrong to think that light things float, while heavy things sink. For example, a heavy log will float down a river, but a light grain of sand will sink. How heavy an object is does have something to do with whether it will float or sink. But there is more to the story. In this activity students investigate what causes an object to float or sink.

Close Packing of Layers of Spheres  William F. Coleman
An animation of the close packing of layers of spheres. In this version, clicking on text links adds the second and third layers, with two options for the third layer. After both ways of adding the third layer have been explored the user has an option to go to a second version that has no text but rather allows the user to drag the layers over one another.
