For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:19–20, ESV)

Have you ever regretted not paying attention in science class? God’s creation is packed full of amazing displays of order and structure that can help us understand not only the world around us, but also his character reflected in creation. In this immersive lab experience, you will get to reengage your old nemesis the periodic table and learn how it can point you to praise God and understand how to predict chemical reactions and then watch them happen in test tubes and beakers right on your lab bench. Of course, you will get to explore the best reaction type of all—combustion—and make some fun fireballs. And to cap it all off, you will put your knowledge to practical use to solve an arson investigation, sniffing out what accelerant was used to spark the fire.

Topics Include:

  • Atoms and the Periodic Table
  • Reaction Types in the Lab
  • Metals in the Spectroscope
  • Reaction Rates and Catalysts
  • Combustion Reactions
  • Arson Forensic Analysis
  • Arson Investigation Activity

Open to students ages 18 and up.
