Chemistry Experiments with Familiar, Inexpensive, and Easily Obtained Materials Mark as Favorite (0 Favorites)

WEBINAR (62 minutes) recorded January 30, 2019

Conducting experiments with materials that can be obtained at local grocery and retail stores provide a variety of advantages to chemistry teachers. By using commonly found items in experiments and demonstrations, teachers provide students with familiar and natural connections to investigations in chemistry. Such materials are generally convenient to obtain, allowing teachers to acquire supplies only a few days (and in some cases a few hours) prior to conducting lessons. In this presentation, several experiments and demonstrations that illustrate the chemistry of common materials will be explored.
