What do you picture when I say “scientist”? Do you see a person in a white lab coat, protective goggles, and a table full of bubbling beakers and foaming flasks? In this program students will take an in-depth look at the chemical world while learning about and practicing lab safety. The experiments continue at home as students take home their own laboratory equipment, and their very own perfect slime!
Week 1 - Lab Works
Bubbling beakers and goopy graduated cylinders! Master the techniques of a first-rate Mad Scientist on your own student-safe lab equipment!
Week 2 - pH Factor
What is an acid? What is a base? How do you tell the difference? Discover the power of hydrogen in this explosive class that will have you climbing up and down the pH scale with ease!
Week 3 - Glow Show
Light is all around us and can even be invisible! What happens when the lights go off and the experiments shine on? Glow Show examines the minerals and chemicals around us that prove to be truly illuminating.
Week 4 - Slime Time
Perform various precarious experiments with Mad Science’s fundamental polymer – Slime! Concoct a variety of chemical formulations and put them to the test in our Slime Olympics. Make and take home the winner as your very own “Perfect Slime.”
Week 5 - Dry Ice-Capades
Freeze water in a matter of seconds, produce dense clouds of vapor and make metal sizzle! Dry Ice Capades ventures through the world of manipulating states of matter with frozen CO2.
Week 6 - Chem In A Flash
See color-changing potions, instantly turn liquids into solids and watch steel rust rapidly before your very eyes. This isn’t magic ... this is chemistry!
Week 7 - Che-Mystery
Create a rainbow of colors using chemical reactions and melt a solid substance into a liquid! Transform your classroom into a laboratory as you unravel the mysteries of chemistry.
