TFX - Natural History Museum - 09
Team FREDNET has been exploring the history of science at the Museum of Natural History, in Los Angeles, California. The museum has exhibits on dinosaurs, mamals, Native Americans, birds, the history of Los Angeles, and an amazing collection of gems and minerals! Here we see some examples of mineral crystal formations. Crystals just like these helped us to understand chemistry by helping us to understand the structure of atoms and molecules. The unique structure of crystals reflects the microscopic world of their constituent molecular structure, on a macroscopic scale. These fascinating objects of nature, helped to teach man about science!
