LB17 The Chemistry of Household Products and ProcessesRegister for Courses
November 2 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Have you ever wondered how your water softener works; what’s behind the plastic abbreviations of those recycle triangles; how soaps and detergents clean; and what happens as you bake bread? This course looks at the basic chemistry behind all of these household products and related chemistry processes at a level that students will understand! There’s no need to have prior knowledge of chemistry to profit from the course. We can see the creative mind of God in chemistry. God has created a marvelous universe that works according to easily understood chemical principles. This program is an eclectic look into some of the many chemical principles that we encounter daily. If you think you hate chemistry, maybe this course will change your mind!
