ACS Spooky Adventures in Chemistry

01 Nov 2019 7:16 PM | Dawn Friesen (Administrator)

This Halloween instead of passing out candy to my co-workers, I passed out hands-on chemistry kits for the parents to do at home. I wanted to raise STEM awareness in the community with hopes those participating will develop a passion for chemistry and other sciences. I selected the experiments from the ACS website. ACS has a great website with Classroom Science Activities for teachers, but you knew that, right? They also have an excellent webpage to help teachers and parents facilitate hands-on experiments for kids to explain complex chemistry.

The kits contained food dye, cotton swabs, plastic pipettes and instructions to demonstrate interfacial tension.
