|If you would like your 5th graders to visit our chemistry lab, please contact us early in the academic year (before the end of September is best) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Workshops are scheduled on either Tuesday or Thursday mornings. We offer two consecutive 90 minute workshops at the following times: 9 –10:30 AM and 10:30 –12 noon. If your school has two 5th grade classes, both classes can come together on the same day.
We provide a cookie and juice/water in between the two workshops.
Cost: There is no cost to participate. However, you need to provide your own transportation. You can arrange for a school bus. If parents drive, they will need to pay for parking.
Waiver Form: In order to participate, all students must bring a waiver form signed by their parents. Please down load the waiver form from this web page. (English and Spanish versions available).
Pre-Lab Activities: To prepare your students before they visit the chemistry lab please go to the link called “Chemistry Lab Visit Preparation Pre Lab Activities” for pre-lab activities, vocabulary, and key concepts. Better prepared students will learn significantly more during their visit. Students bring two very shiny pennies: New pennies (2006 or 2007) work great. If they bring two shiny pennies, they will take home "silver" and "gold" pennies. Students can trade their old dirty oxidized pennies for shiny pennies at grocery or drug stores.
Combining Field trips: While one class visits the chemistry lab, you can arrange to have the other class do another activity on campus. The classes switch during the second session. For example, you can arrange to visit the Geology lab, the touch tanks at the Marine Science Institute, the Physics lab or a campus tour. More information is found in the information packet below.
