About

This subreddit is dedicated to showcasing interesting and entertaining chemical reactions. Read our Wiki for more information on the types of posts you will see here.. Due to our subreddit's size and variety of interesting gifs, over time this we have grown to be accommodating to other types of chemistry, physics and biology related gifs (those who would just like to view one type may use our filters on this sidebar).


Rules

  1. Physical reactions are allowed, along with an extension of other gifs that we feel relevant to this subreddit which you can read about in our wiki here under the "Post Categories" section. Posts will be tagged accordingly based on what category they fall under.

  2. Not every post that is not a chemical reaction is a physical reaction or relevant to this subreddit's accepted posts. For example a post featuring a can being smashed or the motion of a pendulum will be removed.

  3. All link posts must be in either gif or html5 format. Any link post that is not in one of these formats will be deleted. Any interesting or relevant images or videos (whether they be about the subreddit or a demonstration) must be done in a self post.

  4. No albums of gifs allowed in link post or self post form. This is due to trouble categorizing a post which often has multiple gifs that don't fall under one category and leads to a misleading post and confusion.

  5. Reposts are allowed and will be tagged as such for filtering sake. They will not be removed unless a moderator deems the repost to be of a demonstration or particular gif that has been posted too often (e.g. Mercury(II) Thiocyanate Decomposition).

  6. All link posts must have the source of the gif/html5 video posted in the comments. We expect the original poster to do this, however if someone else does so then it will not be removed. Reposts of a post with a source that do not contain the source in the comments will be deleted.

  7. Link posts utilizing the gif/html5 format to skirt the rules will be removed. For example if a demonstration is posted that is a gif but is essentially static image then it will be removed. We will approach this rule on a case-by-case basis to avoid removing naturally slow/lengthy demonstrations to the best of our ability.

In rare cases, exceptions may be made by the moderators if a post is exceptionally intriguing and relevant to discussion in order to maintain quality standards.

Help! Volunteering for a 2nd grade science class!

I have a background in microbiology and biochemistry but its been some years since my education and I've never taught a 2nd grade class.

I was given the following as "Key concepts to Teach/Learn":

  1. Matter and its Interactions

  2. Structure and Properties of Matter

A: Structure and Properties of Matter

▪ Different kinds of matter exist and many of them can be either solid or liquid, depending on temperature. Matter can be described and classified by its observable properties.

▪ Different properties are suited to different purposes.

▪ A great variety of objects can be built up from a small set of pieces.

B: Chemical Reactions

▪ Heating or cooling a substance may cause changes that can be observed. Sometimes these changes are reversible, and sometimes they are not.

I was not given a list of classroom resources so I was hoping someone here could give me some ideas for a cool science presentation that I could prepare myself and bring in that would be appreciated by 2nd graders!

Really appreciate the help! Thank you in advance!

Not sure if this counts. This is a triple point, when the temperature and pressure allows a substance (I.e. water) to boil and freeze at the same time. The right conditions allow all states to coexist.

Chemistry in virtual reality

Hey! I found futuclass.com virtual reality classes for chemistry. I found the idea very cool but wanted to ask if anybody has used virtual reality for learning or teaching. What was the experience and do you feel there's some value?
