Chemistry: The Elements, Rainbows, and Ice Cream!*

Chemistry is all around us in that which we can see and that which we cannot see.  Things that takes place on the atomic level impact every part of the world around us.  The study of Chemistry helps us to better understand all the different areas of science.  

In this course students will:

  • Explore the different elements, including a demonstration of several elements which are used to produce different colored fireworks.
  • Explore the difference between atoms, compounds, and molecules, including an activity where students will build molecular models of multiple compounds and molecules.
  • Explore the chemistry of acids, bases, and pH, including demonstrations and experimentation of several brilliant color changing acid-base titrations.
  • Explore properties of solutions, including the use of a salt water solution to make ice cream.
  • Each day will include a classroom lesson, a classroom demonstration, and a laboratory experiment.
