Science Explorer's Chemistry Fun with Kit and a Virtual Class


Courses - Youth / District 197 / Virtual Classes -
197 Fall Youth Enrichment 2020

Description:Join Science Explorers in our virtual science lab as we explore chemistry. First, your budding scientist will investigate the three most common States of Matter in our environment with messy and bubbly experiments. Then, we will test the pH of six everyday substances as we learn about acids, bases and neutrals. This class will have your child excited about the science side of STEM!
