Quiz Yourself

Student Studying

One of the best ways to check your understanding of chemistry concepts is to quiz yourself. Don't worry, you don't have a grade riding on these quizzes! They are fun and educational.

Chemistry & Chem Engineering Humor

Mad scientists find humor in the strangest places.

Much of science and engineering is very funny (at least to scientists and engineers). Find chemistry, element and engineering jokes, riddles and humor or add your own jokes.

Chemistry Help Videos

This is a flask of aqua liquid.

See examples of how to work chemistry problems or balance equations. These videos explain chemistry concepts in terms you can see.

Homeschool Chemistry Resources

You can do safe science in the comfort of your own kitchen.

If you're teaching or learning chemistry at home you've got lots of great options for chemistry concepts that can be reinforced with safe and easy chemistry experiments. Here are some homeschool chemistry resources to get you started.

Scientific Method

Student science fair projects can make a difference.

 The scientific method is a systematic approach to understanding the world around us, including the world of chemistry. Learn about the steps of the scientific method and how to conduct and analyze an experiment.
