Learners observe and conduct experiments demonstrating the different properties of hot and cold materials.
In this activity, learners use a pneumatic trough (see related activity) to generate and collect pure oxygen.
In this activity on page 4 of the PDF (Get Cooking With Chemistry), learners investigate ingredients that combine to produce gas bubbles.
Learners are given mysterious white powders and have to determine their identity with chemical tests.
In this activity, learners create a "Jam Jar Jet" based on Francois Reynst's discovery of a pulsejet engine, which uses one opening for both air intake and exhaust.
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 classic reaction, learners baking soda and vinegar in a soda bottle to produce carbon dioxide (CO2) gas. This gas inflates a balloon.
This hands-on activity lets participant explore chemical reactions as they create a soda explosion with lots of bubbles. The bubbles in soda are made of carbon dioxide gas.
Learners smell balloons filled with different scents to guess what's inside. From this, they infer the presence and motion of scented molecules.
This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can explore the three states of matter by examining tactile models that illustrate the characteristics of particles in each sta
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.
In this activity, learners explore the human influences on the carbon cycle and examine how fossil fuels release carbon.
On an airplane trip, learners have an opportunity to investigate the properties of air pressure at different altitudes.
Learners observe a sealed container holding a clear colorless liquid. They shake the container and the fluid turns blue. When allowed to sit for a few moments, the fluid turns colorless again.
In this activity, learners measure the amount of carbon dioxide in a carbonated drink.
Using yeast, sugar, and water, learners create a chemical reaction which produces carbon dioxide (CO2) gas inside a 2-liter bottle. They use this gas to inflate a balloon.
In this activity, learners build a hot air balloon using just a few sheets of tissue paper and a hair dryer.
In this chemistry activity, learners fill two test tubes with a solution of "artificial stomach fluid," consisting of hydrochloric acid in the same concentration as in human stomachs, some soap to cre
