What an fun evening of science we had last night! Chemistry students and camp counselors, Diana Oppenheimer and Emma Reinhart, led the students in some very memorable demonstrations of chemical reactions and hands-on activities. Children learned about polymer interactions by making "slime", produced a carbon dioxide gas to inflate a balloon, and attempted to solve a mystery by matching unknown solutions to a known solution using a pH indicator. The star of the show, though, was the "Marsh Monster", an example of how exciting (and surprising!) chemical reactions can be. If you want to try some of these activities at home (with close adult supervision), check out the "recipes" included in this document.
