Type : Virtual School Program
Grades : 9, 10, 11, 12
Duration : 47 minutes
Price : Recording available for free by request
Language : English only

Make observations, predictions and connections as you explore the world of chemistry. Element properties and chemical reactions have never been so exciting! Study the chemistry of elements, acid-base reactions, gas laws, polymers and combustion.

 

Curriculum Connections:
