Learners build a filter from old soda bottles and dirt. They create polluted water, and pour it through their filter to clean it.
In this activity, learners will use clear nail polish and the power of chemistry to create paper with a rainbow sheen.
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.
In this easy chemistry activity, learners submerge pennies in different liquids (water, lemon juice, vinegar, liquid hand soap, salt water, and baking soda mixed with water) to observe which best clea
In this activity, learners examine fingerprints. Learners leave a hidden print on a surface and then make their own print detecting powder from graphite (found in pencils).
In this activity on page 7 of the PDF, learners follow a recipe to make a dough similar to the clay artists use to make sculptures.
In this activity, learners hook up a hair to a lever system and create a hair hygrometer to measure changes in humidity.
In this chemistry activity, learners use thin layer chromatography to determine the molecular composition of different markers.
In this activity (on page 2 of the PDF), the learner places a golf ball between salt water and colored fresh water. The golf ball is not as dense as the saltwater.
In this activity on page 4 of the PDF (Get Cooking With Chemistry), learners investigate ingredients that combine to produce gas bubbles.
In this fun hands-on activity, learners whip up a batch of cyber-dough (play dough) using math for measurements.
In this activity, learners discover the primary physical properties used to separate pure substances from mixtures.
In this experiment, learners separate different types of molecules in marker inks (using a technique called "thin layer chromatography").
In this simple activity, learners see the production of a gas, which visibly fills up a balloon placed over the neck of a bottle.
In this activity, learners build a "pneumatic trough," a laboratory apparatus used for collecting pure gas samples over water.
In this activity, learners build models of atoms and molecules, then consider their role in different phases of matter, density, and mixtures and solutions.
In this classic reaction, learners baking soda and vinegar in a soda bottle to produce carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. This gas inflates a balloon.
In this chemistry challenge, learners identify an unknown white powder by comparing it with common household powders.
In this chemistry challenge, learners identify which plants have the enzyme "catalase" that breaks hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen.
