Description:

In this activity, students themselves will form a model to simulate the solar wind, in which each student acts as a "convection cell". They will discover that the surface of the sun is very active and "boils" like a pot of water, constantly ejecting gases into space. The students should also understand that the constant explosive activity at the sun's surface is driven by powerful, ever-changing magnetic fields that short-circuit and heat the gases to millions of degrees.
