Description

Grades K-2. From fizzing reactions to colorful concoctions, chemistry comes alive as students mix and measure their way through a number of bubbly and oh-so slimy hands-on experiments and demos. Students learn the crucial skills of making observations, using scientific measuring instruments, and sharing their findings with others. Let?s ignite your curiosity for chemistry! Instructor: Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum staff. 6 weeks.


Topics include:

Colorful Concoctions ? Students explore primary, secondary, and tertiary colors and color mixing through a number of hands-on demos. We'll bring the colors, you bring your imagination. Who knew science could be so beautiful?

Bubbles, Bubbles, Everywhere!- Have you ever blown a square bubble? Or launched your own bubbling rocket? Students explore and tinker with the properties of bubbles and surface tension.

It's Elemental! - We'll break down matter to its simplest components atoms. Students configure their own atoms and learn about some of the most common molecules in the universe!

It's a Matter a Changin' ? Solids, liquids, gases-- matter is all around us! Students learn about phase changes and the key properties of matter using a few simple ingredients. Then, repeat these experiments at home to WOW your family and friends!

Actions & Reactions ? Learn about chemical reactions and watch these experiments heat up, bubble, and glow right before your eyes! Get ready to get messy.

SLIME ? Is it a solid? A liquid? Or something in between? Students explore the states of matter in the sticky, ooey, gooey world of slime. Then, take home our recipe cards to make more.
