*A SAMPLE PROJECT IN THE MONTHLY BOX*
Do you know that citrus fruits that are generally considered as acidic, are actually alkaline-producing foods in your body? In this chemistry challenge, your little scientist will perform pH measurements with 6 testing specimens to identify acidity and alkalinity. The kids will also experience the basics of simple chemical qualitative analysis.
pH stands for ‘potential of hydrogen’. pH value is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. The pH value commonly ranges from the scale of 0 to 14, where a pH of 0 means strongly acidic, pH 14 indicates very alkaline, and pH 7 is neutral.
Test foods and drinks available at home, find out their acidity or alkalinity. Attached is a simplified pH chart of common foods created by our science team for you as teaching reference, have fun!
