Exploring Chemistry

(Grades 2-4)

Two boys mix chemicals into a pH indicator solution in the chemical engineering camp

Chemical Engineers and Chemists are responsible for testing and developing the products we use every day. They also research and develop all of the new medications and vaccines responsible for keeping you happy and healthy. If you like projects that fizz and mixing up colorful concoctions, Exploring Chemistry is for you!

Discover what happens when you combine steel nails, pennies, and vinegar. Create a pH indicator out of cabbage and test the pH of various (safe) household chemicals. Formulate your very own bubble recipe and use invisible ink to write secret messages. Explore surface tension and density and use science to create art. Learn how to read chromatography and identify chemical compounds and use your knowledge to solve a crime!
