Overwhelmed by the available chemistry resources? Looking for new chemistry teaching ideas? Elementary Articles is the place for chemistry, education, and everything else.

Elementary Articles is the official blog for the RSC's Learn Chemistry – your home for chemistry education resources and activities.

Exhibition Chemistry Is Here!

Last Friday saw the launch of yet another entertaining set of resources on Learn Chemistry. This time, it was the turn of “Exhibition Chemistry”, a set of 40 guides to dramatic practical demonstrations for teachers to carry out. There are demonstrations suitable for students ages 11-18, and they’re all guaranteed to capture their imaginations and show them just how exciting chemistry can be.

Originally written for our “Education in Chemistry” magazine by inspirational teachers who have perfected the experiments themselves, the articles give a step by step guide to carrying out the demonstration, along with how they can fit into chemistry topics and useful hints and tips for making the biggest impact!  From the explosive Thermite reaction, to making food cans fly, to demonstrating the weird properties of alloys in Magic Metals, these resources certainly show off the best that chemistry has to offer. We hope they can play their part in inspiring the next generation of chemists!
