Chemistry Experiment: Lava lamp

Time to bring back the 70’s with this experiment. We are going to make a lava lamp with simple ingredients that you can buy in a normal supermarket.

2011 was the International Year of Chemistry and the Chemistry Calendar was set up to spread the word of how chemistry is all around us. The Chemistry Calendar Experiments are linked to the different themes of the Chemistry Calendar videos to give educators and students ideas of how to work with these videos in the classroom. Enjoy!
