Chemistry 1

  • Wednesday, December 16, 2015
  • 10:00am - 12:00pm

In this four-part series we will build on the concepts learned during our Introduction to Chemistry as well as introduce new and important elements (hah!) to further our understanding of chemistry. To achieve this goal we will begin by dissecting, examining and rebuilding the periodic table until students view it as a familiar tool instead of a confusing mixture of letters and numbers. We will attempt to balance our first chemical equation! We will “meet the mole” as well as the scientists who helped discover the rules and laws we use today to practice chemistry.

Admittedly, some aspects of chemistry can be dry and even a little intimidating, so to keep your homeschooler engaged and confident, we will move forward slowly and, as always, provide plenty of exciting activities and experiments.

Note: Parents do not need to attend the lab with their child but do need to remain in the museum.

Dates: Wednesdays, November 18, December 2, 9, & 16, 2015
