Celebrate the International Year of Chemistry at home! With easy experiments, you can learn how to fit an egg into a bottle using pressure, how to make your own chemistry volcano at home, and many more examples of chemistry.
CLICK HERE for the "Celebrate Chemistry" student experiment guide!
The experiments in the guide are demonstrated in online videos, posted at YouTube.
Celebrate Chemistry - Baking Soda Volcano
Students are introduced to elements of chemistry in the classic "Baking Soda Volcano." When baking soda and vinegar are mixed, the vinegar reacts with the baking soda to form carbonic acid, which breaks down into carbon dioxide and water, making bubbles and foam!
Celebrate Chemistry - The Chemistry of Blood
Concepts of blood compatibility are explored in "The Chemistry of Blood," an experiment developed for students interested in the human body.
Celebrate Chemistry - Just for the Sport of It
In "Just for the Sport of It," students learn about the science of baseball during a search for the center of percussion, or "node" of baseball bat, referred to as the "sweet spot." That's where the ball goes furthest because it has the most energy behind it. "Just for the Sport of It" covers the law of energy and conservation, and principles of physics.
