Chaotic Chemistry Workshop

Cool chemistry around us.

Hands-on vacation or school workshop all about the types of changes

The mysterious chemical world is explored using materials often found around the home AND science equipment from science laboratories.


Kitchen chemistry is investigated while using real science indicator paper to test for differences in pH values of chemicals and more. Designed to cover a broad range of chemical concepts that is accessible to primary students:

  • kitchen chemistry pH testing using indicator solution & indicator paper (acids & bases)

  • physical changes vs. chemical reactions

  • The classic bicarb and vinegar reaction in STYLE. We launch rockets! (needs large outdoor space).

  • properties of solids, liquids and gases

  • Not 1, Not 2 but THREE Coke mentos geysers (explore variables in an AMAZING way!)

  • energy changes and more…

Cabbage pH

A great way to explore the natural indicator in cabbage and pH of common materials around the kitchen.

We also explore gravity defying slime.

This super sticky slime is amazing and actually seems to defy gravity!
