Chemicals in Action = Chemical Reaction (ages 5-6)

by Summer Institute for the Gifted

Did you know the first type of soap was created through a chemical process using animal fat and ashes (known as lye)? How can something so messy make you cleaner? The answer lies in how soap interacts with oil-based grease or grime! The way materials react is all about chemistry.

Chemistry helps us explain things that happen in nature. Chemists are scientists who use all five senses to explore and explain life.

Experiment with water, acids, bases, and everyday household items to discover the chemical world in which you live. Participate in experiments to learn more about chemical reactions.
