Hands-On Science & Chemistry

Do you like Science but don’t want to turn your home into a laboratory?

What happens if you combine dry yeast and 6% hydrogen peroxide solution?

FourteenSix Christian Academy is all about partnering with parents to make disciples out of our children–one academic step at a time. To this end, parents have their part on Monday’s and Fridays and our teachers at the Academy provide their input on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. One of the things we provide that many homeschool parents really appreciate is “hands on learning opportunities.”

On the first and third Wednesday’s of the month, FourteenSix Academy offers “Ooey, gooey science.” Last week we did a demonstration showing what happens when you combine dry yeast and 6% hydrogen peroxide solution-an–ooey gooey reaction and a TON of carbon dioxide bubbles. It was ooey and it was gooey and the kids really loved it.
Here are some other experiments we have enjoyed this year!
