Please Note: This Camp is only offered during the summer months. We offer this same content as a 4-week course during the regular school year (linked below): Atom Secrets 2: Hands-on Chemical Reaction Experiments! https://outschool.com/classes/atom-secrets-2-hands-on-chemical-reaction-experiments-stem-steam-course-vbaqDsgr This chemistry-themed Camp explores intriguing chemical reactions (using safe household ingredients) over four 50-minute sessions (meeting for 1 week, Monday-Thursday)....
A detailed description of each session's learning goals is listed below: Session 1: Students will learn about: - Atoms and subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons) - Covalent molecular bonding and different types of covalent bonds - Introducing atomic symbols, symbolic chemical equations and chemical reactions - Electron orbitals and the importance of the valence (outer) electron shell - Structure of the Periodic Table of Elements based on electron shell levels - Seeing a chemical reaction equation in action with hands-on Carbon Dioxide bubble experiment Session 2: Students will learn about: - Ionic and covalent molecular bonding - Electron orbitals and the importance of the valence (outer) electron shell in determining molecule bonds - Structure of the Periodic Table of Elements based on electron shell levels - Predicting atomic behavior and writing symbolic representations of molecules - Introduction to chemical reaction formulas - Hands-on experiment making ice cream with salt Session 3: Students will learn about: - Acids, Bases and the pH scale - Ionic and covalent molecular bonding - Relationships between atoms in the same row and column of the Periodic Table - Electron orbitals and the importance of the valence (outer) electron shell - Introduction to chemical reaction formulas - Hands-on experiment testing pH of different liquids Session 4: Students will learn about: - The role of neutrons in an atom, and definition of isotopes - Introduction to chemical reaction formulas - Oxidation of some metals and use of a weak acid solution to clean metal - Radioactive isotopes and their use in Carbon Dating - Hands-on experiment using a chemical reaction to clean dirty pennies
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool.
Each session includes an optional printable homework handout (with an answer key) posted in the Classroom after class.
4 files available upon enrollmentThe course utilizes common household ingredients and items for in-class chemical reaction experiments (participation is optional). Printable illustrated Atom Cards (the same cards used in Atom Secrets Level 1) and session review handouts are provided as well. The optional supply list is provided below: Class 1 Chemical Reaction Supplies: Producing CO2 Bubbles 1. Baking Soda (a couple teaspoons) 2. Vinegar (½ cup) 3. Optional: Liquid Dish Soap or Liquid Hand Soap (if available, just a couple teaspoons needed) 4. Optional: Food coloring (if on hand) 5. Container for mixing (preferably clear); spoon for mixing Class 2 Supplies: Making Ice Cream with Salt 1. Salt (1/2 cup) 2. Bag of ice chips or cubes 3. 2 large ziploc bags 4. For the ice cream mixture: Milk (1 cup), sugar (about 1 Tbsp) and a few drops of vanilla (optional) Class 3 Supplies: Acid Base Investigation 1. Litmus Ph Paper or Cabbage Juice pH tester Any pH paper will do, and can be ordered from any major online retailer, like Amazon (search "pH paper"). Or you can make your own Cabbage Juice pH Paper: https://www.thoughtco.com/make-red-cabbage-ph-paper-605993 2. Different small amounts of liquids to test pH, such as: Milk, soda, lemon juice, apple juice, almond milk, coffee, tea, water, salt water, sugar water, vinegar, etc. 3. Dish or paper to lay out the pH paper tests for easier clean-up Class 4 Supplies: Cleaning Old Pennies 1. Old Pennies (the dirtier the better) 2. Salt (3 Tablespoons) 3. Vinegar (1/2 cup) 4. A container for mixing 5. Paper towel or dish to place the pennies to dry
Learner progress will be assessed through class participation, homework handouts and a quiz at the end of each session.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
