I conduct research to understand how the human body decomposes in our unique Canadian environment.
Chemical Reactions: Conditions & Speeds
Learn about the special conditions that let some chemical reactions take place.
What speeds up a chemical reaction?
Learn about the role of yeast in this fun decomposition reaction.
What is an exothermic reaction?
Things are heating up! Explore the temperature change that occurs in an exothermic reaction and the role of catalysts is this chemistry activity.
Every time you wash your hands with soap, there are complex chemical reactions taking place.
How can I make a volcano?
Create a model of an erupting volcano and learn about the structures of a stratovolcano in this hands-on activity.
Can Whales Really Explode?
When deceased whales wash up on shore, people fear they might explode. Gas laws, decomposition reactions and organic chemistry can help us understand this fear.
