Day & Time: Wednesday 10:15-11:25
Mentor: Robyn Copa
Intro to Chemistry will be unlike any other chemistry class you have ever taken! This class is designed for those who hate or are scared of chemistry and those that love chemistry. There is no math requirement for this class.
The purpose and design of this introductory class is to get students excited about science and especially chemistry. We will be doing hands-on experiments and fun activities to help students see the connections between the chemical and the real world. You will even be able to eat some of your experiments. By the end of this year long class you will have a greater appreciation for chemistry and how it is used in our everyday life, you may even decide that you want to become a chemist!
I (Robyn Copa) have taught chemistry in high school for four years and one year for LOL. I taught Physics and want to add one unit in this class, too (just to get a little taste). My goal is always to make learning science fun and engaging.
Topics we will cover in this class are:
- Acids & bases
- Different types of atomic bonding
- Molecules and some of their properties
- Oxidation and reduction
- The periodic table and elements
- Organic chemistry
- Much more!
All classes are full year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
