Chemistry Experimentation

This course introduces foundational concepts of chemistry.

Students will

-strive to find the answers to  "How does it work, and why?" 


-formulate and research questions related to topical experiments

-complete experiments

-interactively discuss their research

-develop critical thinking

-become exposed to increasingly complicated areas of science

-deepen scientific curiosity


Labs include building molecules models from the periodic table, creating an array of chemical reactions, and testing hypotheses about outcomes of scientific experiments.



This course introduces foundational, experiment-based labs to spark scientific curiosity and develop critical thinking skills.  Students will utilize the scientific method to answer: "How does it

work, and why?", in relation to a research question and experiment each class.  After an interactive discussion about the research behind the question, students will execute an experiment.  Through building molecules from the periodic table, and following observing chemical reactions, students are exposed to increasingly complicated areas of science.
