Explore the world of chemistry in an outstanding Macalester lab. Students will experiment with wondrous materials and find out what makes them tick. You will discover the balancing forces of nature and take a look into the nature of matter itself. This class is all about labs. Students will develop their fingerprints with iodine, freeze marshmallows with dry ice, measure the energy content of different foods by burning them, titrate vinegar to measure its acid content, dissolve styrofoam, create slime, and more. Bring your questions and your curiosity! When we combine fun experiments with useful information, using a catalyst of curiosity, the product is some real chemistry! Will there be explosions? YES!
Chemistry is a Blast!
