Welcome to Young-Scientist.in's October Chemistry Month.
Chemistry is fun and we believe it. If you do not agree, give us a chance to change your mind!
This is the second workshop as part of our celebration of chemistry. We will be introducing the amazing chemical properties of acids & bases and their applications in everyday life. After a training in safety, the kids will be given a chance to do certain experiments under supervision. A detailed treatment of the various indicators and their action will be done and the kids will have a hands-on experience using them to test mystery chemicals. If you are interested in YS Quantitative Chemistry in October, we recommend attending this workshop to build a strong foundation in acid-base reactions. The concepts learnt here will be useful to conduct the Titration in the next workshop in the series.
