In this project – a group of no more than 3 students- will be choosing a chemical element to research from a specific list generated by QR code. There will be three random elements or compounds given and your group must choose one of the three generated elements or compounds OR trade with another group. Once you have chosen the element – you cannot change mid-stream. The idea is to teach the class about what you have found and promote awareness of it. Be prepared to answer questions regarding your research.
The idea is to teach the class about what you have found and then do a practical demonstration that highlights the chosen chemical elements or compound’s properties along with a 3-5 minute presentation using Keynote, Powerpoint or Prezi. In addition, you get to make the demonstration as interesting as you want. If you need help sourcing chemical elements or compounds, please ask!
There are plenty of elements and compounds to choose from!
Here is a Prezi on the element Phosphorus, below.
Here is another Prezi on Hydrazine.
