On this page, we have a list of our favorite chemistry
experiments! But first what is chemistry? Chemistry is the study of substances
and their properties, structure and how they interact with other substances. By
substance, we anything and everything made up of atoms including elements,
molecules and compounds.
Chemistry can be used to explain all sorts of chemical
reactions such as exciting explosions and fire. We can also explain much more
mundane reactions such how dish soap cleans greasy dishes.
If you are ready to learn more about the wondrous world of
chemical interactions and properties pick out of the experiments below!

This is one of those classical chemistry experiments that
everyone should do at least once. If your looking for the perfect experiment to
introduce your children to chemistry this is it! There is much to be learned
from this exciting experiment.
Dry ice experiments
I love dry ice experiments. Dry ice introduces a phenomenon
that we don’t usually see in our everyday life, sublimation! This experiment definitely
ignites the spark of curiosity in any little budding scientist.
Mentos and diet coke
This is a classic experiment which was quite popular on the

Hot Ice is a beautiful chemistry experiment which is not only
extremely entertaining and interactive but also educational.
How can a lemon be turned into a battery? That’s a great
question check out this page to find out!
In this experiment, we use chemistry to remove the shell of
an egg leaving us with an egg without a shell. If you’ve never held an egg without
a shell your missing out, why not give it a try and learn some chemistry along
Make your own indicator solution and test different household
items to see whether they are acidic or basic.
