Chem Lab Camp Day 6

Continuation from Chem Lab Camp Day 1, Chem Lab Camp Day 2, Chem Lab Camp Day 3,Chem Lab Camp Day 4Chem Lab Camp Day 5 and Lab Sciences.

Today's lab went a little more slowly than we planned. We took extra time to explain logarithms. About half the class didn't have a good grasp on this math concept and the teacher spent some time going over it before moving on to the experiments involving pH balance.

We've come to the conclusion that we will only cover about half the kit material by the end of the week. We're bouncing around ideas on what the next step will be. We may finish the second half of the kit next summer or do the experiments one at a time during the year as part of our homeschool co-op.

The kids will have 40+ hours of solid lab experience by Friday.
