We are bringing the periodic table to life in our Tuesday/Thursday science class. Each week we will learn new things from the world of chemistry. What happens when solids, liquids, and gases are heated and cooled? Are two atoms of the same element identical? Can water stay liquid below zero degrees Celsius? Can you light diamond on fire? How does plasma make a campfire flame orange? How does dissolving a salt molecule in water make its atoms ionize? Following the scientific investigation process, this course expands on basic chemistry concepts in inquiry-based lessons.
Tuesdays: Classroom lecture
Thursdays: Classroom lab
