Drying It Out
In this activity, learners investigate and compare the rate of drying in different conditions.
Sublime SublimationAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners explore sublimation by conducting experiments with dry ice.
Dry Ice Comet
In this activity, dry ice and other items are used to construct a demonstration model of a comet that illustrates the comet nucleus, coma, and tails.
A Mole of GasAdd to list Details
In this two-part activity, learners use everyday materials to visualize one mole of gas or 22.4 liters of gas. The first activity involves sublimating dry ice in large garbage bag.
Instant Ice Cream with a Dry Ice Bath
In this chemistry meets cooking activity, learners make carbonated, vanilla ice cream using dry ice and denatured ethanol, which are both inexpensive and accessible.
Light SodaAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners sublimate dry ice and then taste the carbon dioxide gas.
Inflate-a-moleAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners conduct an experiment to find the volume of one mole of gas. Learners capture sublimated gas from dry ice in a ziploc bag and use water displacement to measure its volume.
In this activity, learners act as water molecules and travel through parts of the water cycle to discover that it is more complex than just water moving from the ground to the atmosphere.
Bubble SuspensionAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners observe as soap bubbles float on a cushion of carbon dioxide gas. Learners blow bubbles into an aquarium filled with a slab of dry ice.
Capturing Carbon DioxideAdd to list Details
In this activity, learners investigate carbon sequestration by creating a carbonated beverage out of apple juice and dry ice.
"Sublimation Bubbles" allows learners to explore how some solid materials, such as dry ice, can phase change directly from their solid to gaseous form.
