Hello I am a student at UTRGV and I am in the education program. I want to know what kind of activities could one do that is engaging and fun related to chemistry? Chemistry can be a difficult topic for most especially those younger. I want to see how to break that barrier and turn a difficult subject into an enjoyable one.

There are many ways to make chemistry enjoyable! To be specific, I would have to know the topic you are looking to do, but incorportating demos for students is a big one. When they can see what they are learning happening in real life they get more engaged. A fun one that I like to do either in the bonding unit or stoichiometry unit is have the students do a s'more lab.
