You can try making indicator paper or solution. Red cabbage leaves are the standard home indicator, but I found the juice from inkweed berries changed colour.Niaboc67 said:All very interesting ideas. I am an absolute beginning I've never done any chemical experiments of any kind.
Some safe beginner chemistry experiments include making slime, creating a baking soda and vinegar volcano, and conducting a color-changing milk experiment.
You will need basic laboratory equipment such as beakers, test tubes, and a graduated cylinder, as well as common household items like food coloring, vinegar, and baking soda.
Always wear protective gear like goggles and gloves, and follow instructions carefully. Make sure to work in a well-ventilated area and dispose of chemicals properly.
Yes, many beginner chemistry experiments can be safely conducted at home with adult supervision. However, some experiments may require specialized equipment and should be done in a laboratory setting.
Some beginner chemistry experiments for kids include creating a density rainbow, making a lava lamp with oil and water, and conducting a simple chromatography experiment using markers and coffee filters.
