What’s up at the Experiment Bar? 

February’s New Experiment is Ready! Set! ….React?

Discovered in 1886, the Iodine clock reaction has been captivating young chemists for more than a hundred years! This experiment showcases the magic of reaction kinetics, the chemistry of how fast or slow substances transform into new substances.  In this version, we’ve sloooowed things down so we can observe the chemical transformation as it occurs.
