MicroChem Kit for Online Schools 

The MicroChem Kit for Online Schools provides instruction at a college-preparatory level.  It is intended as the laboratory component of a chemistry course and works well with any quality chemistry curriculum.

We have designed the MicroChem Kit for Online Schools to make learning for the students as safe as possible and convenient. This chemistry lab course is based on the Microscale method which uses about 1/100th of the chemicals a typical lab would consume. The chemical reagents are supplied in dropper bottles that are ready-to-go and do not require any mixing or further preparation. Dropping bottles facilitate the Microscale method, simplify classroom management, and help students stay organized and avoid spills, errors and inconsistencies. There are no concentrated acids or bases in the kit. The equipment provided is mostly plastic which reduces breakage.

This kit includes a 119 page manual which explains each experiment covering the following:

- Goals

The goals section outlines the major learning areas of the experiment.

- Background

The background would be equivalent to a short lecture on the theory of the experiment.

- Materials and Equipment

Get the equipment out of the kit and you are good to go. Any items not included in the kit like ice, sugar, hot water, etc. are also mentioned in this area, as well as at the beginning of each experiment.

- Procedure

By following the step by step procedure to do the experiment, the students can learn the topic and accomplish good results.

- Results

Students answer questions in the results area that are designed to make them think. This gives students a better understanding as well as a record of their completion.

The MicroChem Kit for Online Schools contains sufficient materials to perform every experiment with all that's needed except a few commonly available items.  It is intended as full year of labs designed to make teaching and preparation very convenient for the instructor.  Use with adult supervision.  For ages 14 and up.
