Oxidation-Reduction Reactions Made Fun

Whoever thought learning science was boring had not encountered the teaching modules and demonstrations prepared for teachers by the department of chemical engineering at the University of Utah.
Read about one of them–Dancing Gummi Bears–on the Huffington Post science page.  And teachers, get all the particulars of this and many more modeules online through the chemical engineering’s outreach pages on the U’s website 
Please observe the warnings on every module:
IMPORTANT!!! Some of the equipment and procedures needed to implement these modules may pose a serious threat to health and safety. Under no circumstances should a unsupervised minor perform the experiments described herein. All experiments should be supervised by an adult who is completely familiar with and takes full responsibility for the possible hazards.
