Investigating Density CurrentsAdd to list Details
In this lab activity, learners explore how to initiate a density current. Learners measure six flasks with different concentrations of salt and water (colored blue).
Arctic Story PuzzlesAdd to list Details
This activity has three story puzzles learners can solve to learn about life in the Arctic.
Shaving Cream Marbling
In this activity, learners will create beautiful greeting cards by marbling with shaving cream and food dye. They will explore the chemistry behind the art of marbling.
Salting OutAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners create a mixture of water, alcohol and permanent marker ink, and then add salt to form a colored alcohol layer on top of a colorless water layer.
To Dye ForAdd to list Details
Learners add two dyes to mineral oil and water, and then compare their miscibility (how well they mix) in each.
