As Dr. Lisa Chirlian always says - chemistry is the study of the way materials are put together and how they act under various conditions and best of all - - chemistry is ALL around us! Did you know that you have a chemistry lab right in your own home? These experiments from Dr. Lisa use everyday materials and can be performed in an ordinary kitchen.
Before we begin, there are some General Safety Rules to learn.
- Always be sure to have a responsible adult supervising your experiment - in fact, make Kitchen Chemistry a family experience!
- Never taste food that you are using for a science experiment - not only might it taste bad, it could also be bad FOR you.
- Finally, as a general safety precaution, never mix bleach or ammonia with anything else!
Now that you have those rules - let's learn about chemistry!
