Reactions and Indicators

Chemistry is all about atoms—but atoms are too small to see. Chemists use the observable properties of substances to deduce their atomic structure. In this workshop students will use indicator chemicals that distinguish acids from bases, carry out safe chemical reactions, and look for signs of chemical and phase change.
