Tips on doing the blue bottle chemistry experiment
By: Theresa Cobb
An excellent, yet simple, experiment for elementary students, the blue bottle chemistry experiment is used to demonstrate reactions between certain chemicals. When this experiment is executed properly, a blue solution, inside a clear glass bottle, gradually becomes clear when left to sit. When the...
