The following items are great resources for students for help with determining what chemistry experiments to perform or projects to undertake. There are dozens of ideas and most can be carried out with items found around the house.

In addition, we also include resources that teachers can use to prepare for performing chemistry experiments in the classroom. Each item contains dozens of experiments complete with materials lists and instructions.

Each title links to fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog. While these titles are held by the Library, many of them will also be available through your local public or academic library.
