Project 6 out of 20
Dissolve metal using chemical reactions.Order Now
Have you ever dissolved metal using chemical reactions? In this Dissolving Foil experiment, you’ll set up a series of different reactions using aluminum foil over the top of your glass beaker. You’ll create a small bowl shape in the foil, and then start adding solutions from your Dissolving Foil Experiment kit into the foil bowl, seeing what happens at each step. Make sure you don’t pierce the foil with any of your instruments when you’re adding different solutions or water at each step, as you’ll want to see what happens in the final step of your experiment. Careful, chemical reactions can make quite a splash!
What you'll receive in the Dissolving Foil project kit:
Found in the Starter Kit:
Glass Beaker (150mL)
Double Ended Measuring Spoon
Copper (II) Sulfate
Expand your understanding of chemistry concepts as you conduct experiments that focus on metals and their reactivity.
Visualizing Metal Reactivity. See what happens when different metals react and undergo chemical reactions.
The Reactivity Series of Metals. Find out how the order of this series determines the outcome of chemical reactions.
Metals as Conductors of Electricity. Figure out which metals would make the most effective wires and tools in real life.

The Reactiviy Series of Metals
Metals as Conductors of Electricity
Welcome to the reactivity series! Learn why certain metals are better conductors of electricity as you experiment with and observe metallic reactions in real time. In Lesson 3, you’ll be introduced to the reactivity series of metals and how this organizes metals based on their ability to easily lose electrons. You’ll conduct experiments that will demonstrate how the order of the reactivity series determines the outcomes of chemical reactions, forming new substances. Begin to unlock an understanding of how different compounds are formed, and why specific metals are used for certain applications in real life. Grab your safety goggles and get started!
