  • What's the Big Idea? Understanding the Laboratory Experience in the AP* Chemistry Curriculum If you teach AP* Chemistry, you’re already aware, or need to be, that changes to the course curriculum are here, which means you’ll probably have to change your classroom instruction. To help relieve your anxiety, here’s an overview of the course revisions, some important dates to remember, and 2 ways Carolina can help to ensure your success during this transition. View »
  • Kool-Aid® Chromatography Students encounter mixtures every day though they may not realize it. Use this chromatography activity to teach an important lab technique and introduce or reinforce key science terms and concepts. View »
  • Equilibrium and Milk of Magnesia Rainbow This demonstration shows a colorful reaction that is a good introduction to Le Châtelier’s principle, solubility, stoichiometry, neutralization reactions, and reaction rates. View »
  • Foaming Rainbow Demonstration In this demo, you add dry ice to a basic solution of dish detergent and universal indicator. As carbon dioxide is released from the solution, it forms bubbles with the dish detergent, producing a mass of foam. View »
  • Petri Dish Electrolysis Activity Introduce your students to reduction-oxidation reactions and some of the basic terms of electrochemistry (such as electrode potential, anode, and cathode) with this activity—creating electrolysis in a petri dish. View »
  • Carbon Snake In this teacher-directed demonstration of an exothermic reaction, students observe the dehydration of a carbohydrate using concentrated sulfuric acid. View »
  • Egg-cellent Chemistry: Teach Key Concepts by Decorating Eggs Decorating eggs is a fun way for students to explore a range of scientific concepts (such as pH and acids and bases) and make real-world connections. Here are 2 activities that are to dye for! View »
  • Thermochemistry: An Endothermic Reaction In this thermochemistry demonstration, students observe an extreme, spontaneous endothermic reaction between 2 solid compounds, measure changes in temperature, and make observations. View »
  • Food Calorimetry: How to Measure Calories in Food Help your students learn how to determine the calories in food with this hands-on lab activity. Using common, inexpensive materials, students construct a calorimeter and test several food samples to determine their energy content.
