Science Circle meeting - Electron configuration, Oxidizers and Reducers

This time, we will cover some fundamentals in chemistry, and how it is related to electron shells/orbitals configuration.

- Electron shells, subshells and orbitals

- Aufbau principle, Madelung law

- Bonds - covalent, ionic, metal

- Octet rule

- Electronegativity. Oxidizers and Reducers

- Acids, Bases and Salts. Some chemical reactions

- pH

I know, that sounds a lot. So, if we dont have enough time - we can just split the lesson, and continue next time

We meet monthly, to study some scientific topic with children, and discuss questions and ideas that children have to brainstorm together.

Usually, we start with couple logical puzzles - for warmup and icebreaking.
Then - the main lesson and discussion, covering some scientific topic.
It is followed by the "Science Bowl" - trivia game, played between 2 teams that brainstorm scientific (and not only) questions.

All of our meetings are free. We, the parents, just prepare something for children to make our meetings interesting (but no worries if you did not prepare anything this time).

    This is regarding tomorrow meeting -
    does somebody have a poster or something similar, with periodic system of chemical elements? Just to use it during our meeting?
    We will study oxidizers/reducers and how it is connected to electron orbitals, so I wanted to keep table of chemical elements in front of the students during our lesson.
    I asked also from the library, if they have something.

      My husband made some 11x17 copies of the periodic table to bring today. He has a PhD in chemistry, so he'll be a good resource for today's discussion.

      Hello Jill, thank you very much.
