Fizzy Nano Challenge
This lesson focuses on how materials behave differently as their surface area increases.
Say Cheese!Add to list Details
Create a chemical reaction that makes cheese! This hands-on activity demonstrates that molecules and atoms are tiny particles that make up everything around us.
Find the Fizz: Discover the Secret of Baking PowderAdd to list Details
In this activity on page 4 of the PDF (Get Cooking With Chemistry), learners investigate ingredients that combine to produce gas bubbles.
ElectroplatingAdd to list Details
In this electrochemistry activity, learners will explore two examples of electroplating.
Learners investigate how temperature affects the rate of chemical reactions by observing how steel wool reacts with various types of Kool-Aid solutions at different temperatures.
Mystery PowdersAdd to list Details
In this activity on page 2 of the PDF (Get Cooking With Chemistry), learners conduct chemical tests on certain powders used in cooking.
Great Balls of GoopAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners mix white craft glue and borax solution together to produce a surprising new material: GOOP!
Illuminations on Rates of ReactionsAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners investigate the speed of chemical reactions with light sticks. Learners discover that reactions can be sped up or slowed down due to temperature changes.
Pesticides and Eggshell Thinning
This lab activity is about toxic substances like pesticides and their effects on biological systems. The activity starts with an introduction of how birds sequester calcium to make an egg.
Learners mix vinegar and baking soda together in a bottle to create a chemical reaction. The reaction produces a gas, carbon dioxide, which inflates a balloon attached to the mouth of the bottle.
The "Rocket Reactions" activity is an exciting way to learn about how materials interact, behave, and change.
What is Light?
In this four-part activity, learners will discover the exciting world of light--the most important form of energy in our world--and be able to identify and describe different types of light.
Heat Speeds Up Reactions
In this activity, learners investigate the effect of heat on a reaction.
Toy ChemistryAdd to list Details
In this playful, goopy activity, learners mix two liquids to create a solid (that sometimes acts like a liquid ), using basic household materials such as borax and glue.
ZOOM GlueAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners mix milk, vinegar, baking soda, and water to create sticky glue. Use this activity to explain how engineers develop and evaluate new materials and products.
Antigen-Antibody Testing: A Visual Simulation or Virtual Reality
In this biology activity, learners use plastic pipettes to cut wells into the solid gel layer of agar in petri dishes and place solutions of simulated antigen and antibody preparations into the wells.
Fizzy Foam Fun
In this activity, learners create a colorful foam fountain by adding yeast to a chemical reaction. This activity introduces chemical reactions to young learners and teaches the concept of catalysts.
Secret MessageAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore acid and bases as they create their own invisible ink out of baking soda and grape juice.
Homemade Bath Fizzies
In this activity, learners make their own bath bomb fizzies and experience what happens when they mix a base and an acid.
3-2-1 POP!Add to list Details
In this physics activity, learners build their own rockets out of film canisters and construction paper.
