In this exciting, hands on learning experience, students will use fruit, dish soap, vinegar and baking soda to explore chemical reactions. We'll learn all about acids and bases, what happens when the interact, and what they create when mixed together. Students will also have a chance to take a guess and discover which fruit makes the most explosive volcano, and why. During the first portion of our class, we'll briefly discuss what is an acid and what is a base, and talk about what acids and...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn about chemical reactions between acids and bases and work on creating solid hypothesis. The most important thing is that they have fun!

40 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Allergy Warning: Learners will be handling, but not ingesting, fruit, baking soda, and vinegar in this class. We will be using baking soda, dish soap, and vinegar in this class. Baking soda and vinegar creates a bubbly reaction when mixed together. Baking soda will be added to cut fruit along with dish soap (also a base), then vinegar will be added to make the volcanoes.
