Come and learn about Chemistry!

What is matter and why is it not always the same?  Students will observe physical and chemical changes with fun experiments such as turning pennies into gold, making crystals, and watching popcorn "dance."  They will also use litmus paper and a universal indicator to learn all about acids, bases, and indicators.
