"Acids Aren't Created Equal"

This class is open to the public, expect there to be people enrolled who are not in members of SAS. Maximum of 10 students per class will be enrolled. RSVP Dr Schreier immediately to reserve a spot for you and any children. RSVP on here only after you have confirmed your spot with Dr Schreier.

Who: Curious people, age 10 to Adult.
What: FUN, INFORMATIVE classes, with NO TESTS OR GRADES. Classes include a discussion of the material, followed by hands-on experiments in a real laboratory using the same equipment used by professional scientists. Two classes currently available:

 
“Acids Aren’t Created Equal” Battery acid, lemon juice, vinegar. All are acids, but they aren’t the same. Learn how to measure acid strength (pH) using color indicators and how to change the strength of the acids – your fish and your pool will thank you. Use acids to generate gases and find out which gas is hydrogen. 


“CO2 – It’s Sublime” What’s the difference between a balloon filled with air and one filled with carbon dioxide? Why does dry ice make fog? Can your exhaled breath sustain a flame? Learn about the fascinating properties of CO2 and its role in our environment.

Where: In a real, professional laboratory.

    Frank I apologize for not canceling in time. A meeting ran long and I would not have arrived until the later half of the class. Next time I need to keep contact info with me.

    Can any of these experiments be recreated at home to share with my 8 & 7 years young children?

      I have no doubt they can be with just the explanations simplified.

      Yeah, I stopped by her lab on Friday and talked with her about this. It sounds really awesome, and depending on how it goes there is a huge range of workshop topics she will teach.
