Chem Camp Handbook

Chem Camp Handbook

Type: M    |    Level: MS

Chem Camp Handbook is a complete guide to conducting a chemistry workshop for middle school students over five half-days or weekend. Draw on our experience—this handbook provides information on what to do and how to do it! There are lab activities and ideas for demonstrations on five topics, a topic for each day: elements; acids and bases; chromatography and ions; metals and alloys; and crystal growing and polymers.

You will find everything you need to know! Separate instructor notes, group leader notes, and student handout masters; materials and supplier lists; time and money budgets; masters for publicity; parental permission slips; etc. It really is a complete guide!
