Workshops Offered for Fall 2018:
What is Vitamin C? Where do you find it and why do we need it? Have your students learn about the process of titration and how chemical reactions can be used to measure or indicate concentration.
How does light behave? Have your students figure out the different ways that light can behave with these hands-on activities. They will then perform a series of labs to confirm some basic rules.
What is a fuel cell? Have your students connect to and build upon their knowledge of oxidation-reduction reactions in order to introduce the chemistry involved in fuel cell technology.
Electrochemistry: Salt Bridges
How does a battery store charge? Where do the charges go? Have your students learn how a battery separates two favorable half reactions to store energy and to learn the variables that affect a batteries performance.
