Description: Summer Chemistry Lab 1

This is a hands-on chemistry lab, with no homework required. There will be optional resources shared for further study. The class will use basic algebra to calculate reactions, etc.

Labs will include:

Density, Recrystallization, Formula of Hydrate, Single-Replacement, and Rate of Reaction

Summer Chemistry Lab 2 will cover different topics. Both are stand-alone courses, or can be taken together.

Several of the labs are based on the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments, by Robert Bruce Thompson, but it’s not necessary to buy it. This book is written for adults.

Students should bring …

  • pen or pencil
  • calculator
  • wear long pants and sleeves, and closed toe shoes

Please watch Crash Course’s video on lab techniques before the first class: Lab Techniques & Safety: Crash Course Chemistry #21 - YouTube.

There will be a liability waiver to sign before class.
