Come face-to-face with the challenges the greatest scientists confronted as your student re-creates their famous experiments.

Relive moments like Charles Darwin making his first discoveries on evolution as he traveled to the Galapagos Islands and Dmitri Mendeleev on the train ride across Siberia when he began to wonder if all matter in the universe was related in some way.

Short Course 3: The Chemistry of Air

These courses will best for

your child if they:

  • Are in middle school and they don’t like reading but are extremely interested in science 

  • Like learning science on their own time without the pressures of schedules or live classes

  • Can solve for one unknown in an algebraic equation. Ideally, your child should’ve taken or be currently enrolled in pre-algebra or algebra. 

  • Know how to graph to determine a scale for coordinate axes and properly draw and label x, y axes.

  • Know how to collect and record data with pen and paper or excel.

  • Can maintain an orderly and safe space for small lab experiments. Small amounts of acids are used and small combustion reactions occur, which require careful and patient attention.

Pop back in later to see more courses as they’re released...

We'll be releasing the full-year course series for The Story of the Periodic Table over the next 5 months. This course series will consist of 6 courses, the first of which is The Chemistry of Atom. Below is the proposed release schedule.​

  • December: Course 3 - The Chemistry of Air

  • January: Course 4 - The Mass of an Atom

  • February Course 5 - The Periodic Law

  • March: Course 6 - The Chemistry of Electrons
