Matter / walking through walls?
   Our eighth grade science class is learning that atoms are mostly
empty space, except for a tiny nucleus and a handful of high-speed
electrons zipping around at a tremendous distance from the nucleus.
Since all matter is made of atoms, and atoms are mostly empty space,
we want to know why we can't walk through walls.
