Let's put on our lab coats and explore the awesome world of metal chemistry!

Let's turn copper coins into gold! Yes, we can really do that! (Okay, it's what we call an alloy, specifically brass, but it looks like gold!) Let's melt down bismuth and make bismuth crystals! (As seen in the picture! How cool are they?!). Let's react metals with water, air, acids, and alkalis.

We'll conduct tons of experiments, and students must be prepared to come in every day to work safely and responsibly with chemicals in a laboratory environment. Closed-toed shoes must be worn.

THIS CLASS IS CAPPED AT 28 STUDENTS FOR HEALTH AND SAFETY REASONS.
