In this electrochemistry activity, learners will explore two examples of electroplating.
In this chemistry activity, learners explore the amount of copper in a new penny. Learners use toilet bowl cleaner to hollow out the interior of a penny with zinc inside.
In this activity, learners discover how a piece of fruit can act as an electrolyte, conducting electricity between two different metals.
In this activity, learners take apart a used zinc-carbon dry cell battery.
This is an activity (located on page 3 of the PDF under Stained Glass Activity) about nanotechnology making its way into everyday products, such as sunscreen, and how effective these invisible particl
The Let's Do Chemistry "Build a Battery" activity lets participants learn how batteries work and how materials behave, change, and interact by building their own simple battery out of metal and felt w
In this activity, learners use heat to separate zinc and copper in a penny. This experiment demonstrates physical properties and how physical change (phase change) can be used to separate matter.
In this activity, learners explore the properties of metals at four stations. The stations include A) Magnetism and Breakfast Cereal; B) Conductivity of Metals; C) Alloys; and D) Metal Plating.
In this activity, learners light an LED with five cents. Learners use two different metals and some sour, salty water to create a cheap battery.
In this chemistry activity, learners use common chemicals and metals to explore single replacement reactions.
