Silicon Valley High School Chemistry Lab Kit

This Chemistry Lab Kit is customized for Silicon Valley High School.

The laboratory portion of a chemistry class can be a concern for teachers with limited lab facilities. This includes teachers in private schools, public schools, charter schools, and home schools. This manual and the accompanying kit are an effort to help solve this problem. The laboratory exercises have been designed with three goals in mind: educational challenge, safety, and convenience for the teacher.

This kit, intended for the laboratory portion of the course, is based on the microscale method. This relatively new approach to chemistry gives students a lab experience as good as or better than the usual methods, but uses about 1/100th of the chemicals. The experiments are much safer and disposal much easier.

The chemical solutions are pre-mixed and in dropping bottles that give constant drop size. This eliminates the need to mix solutions, greatly reduces spills, and reduces set-up time to a few minutes. The only chemicals not in the kit are sugar, table salt, and vinegar.
