ELEMENTary, my dear South Carolinians! Everyone knows that matter matters, but what exactly is matter made of? Students will explore the periodic table, have some pH fun, and spend some serious bonding time with some chemical compounds. Plus, we’ll put on our mad scientist goggles for a metallic flame experiment.
