Welcome to day 5 of Port Byron Library’s
“Exploring Science at the Library” Fall 2017 program!
We’re glad you’ve decided to join us.
This Chemistry-based program will run for 8 weeks through November 1, 2017.
Please make sure to check the website each week as we try to keep you up-to-date with pertinent information that you might find useful.
Middle and High School.
Middle and High School:
measured mass and volume, and learned about avoiding parallax. They used factor label (a/k/a: dimensional analysis) and then calculated density. Here are some resources you can use at home:

Today we talked more about Chemical Reactions –
We made predictions about whether we would see a chemical or physical reaction.
A chemical reaction happens when atoms or molecules get together and break apart or swap atoms.
Some signs that a chemical reaction may have taken place:
- color change (like the pink acid & the green base make purple)
- solids forming (like milk and vinegar)
- bubbles (like vinegar and baking soda)
- temperature change
- odor, or light

More fun with learning about Chemistry next week; so come and see!
