Cracking chemistry

This activity pack includes science investigations you can do to familiarise yourself with chemistry.  These activities are an ideal way for schools, science clubs and even families to take part in chemistry hands-on activities and have fun. Activities include: make a rainbow fish, honeycomb toffee and bubble tennis!

Ready, Bread-y, Go!  

For this project, we have asked the experts from the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) to help us choose the best activities from our packs.
