Lesson 3: Exploring Reactions with ‘Elephant Toothpaste’

Date: July 18, 2016

Welcome to Lesson 3 of Metro Parent’s Virtual Camp!

Chemistry is a big deal! But, boiled down, it’s pretty simple. It’s all about stuff, what it’s made of and how it changes. And it often involves a “catalyst” – the “spark” that causes a reaction to happen. You know the baking-soda-and-vinegar volcano science fair project? Well, get ready to try a fresh spin on that “ka-boom” classic. You’ll also find kids books, websites, toys and local destinations that bring chemistry to life.
