18 chemistry experiments to conduct at home or any school where standard lab facilities are not available.
In contexts without a lab facility, conducting effective chemistry experiments is one of the greatest challenges. Homeschooling families may resort to "easy experiments using household items. The result can quickly become little more than a magic show. Students mix ingredients and watch the effects, but are not taught real chemistry. The chemicals, procedures, and equipment often bear little or no resemblance to what a real chemist would use, and they do not prepare students for the rigors of their college science courses.
