About the course
What drives chemical reactions to occur? Why doesn't my coffee suddenly burst into flames when it’s exposed to oxygen? All chemical reactions involve energy. Using a cold and hot volcano experiment, you will examine how energy is given off or taken in to make chemical reactions occur.
Embrace the science of chemical change! This week's topic is all about reactions and transformation.
Hot and Cold Volcanoes
Endothermic vs Exothermic
Students will learn about endothermic/exother mic reactions, along with activation energy.
Cold Volcano Experiment
Students will write the reaction for baking soda and vinegar producing carbon dioxide and make a volcano experiment.
Hot Volcano Experiment
Students will write the reaction for hydrogen peroxide and yeast to make a warm volcano.

Joyce is currently studying chemistry with a minor in math at New York University! She has tutored students in SAT, chemistry, math, and worked as a teacher at a Korean language school. If you are falling behind in school, she will work with your given materials at your pace. If you want to learn something completely new, she will provide materials and assign regular homework for practice. Let’s work together to achieve your learning goals!
