Resources for activity materials

One source for copper sulfate (for the yeast toxicity activities) is products sold to kill roots in plumbing.

The Modernist Pantry is one source for food-grade sodium alginate. You can get calcium chloride from them too, or get it less expensively at the grocery in the form of Pickle Crisp. If you want to go all out, Modernist Pantry has fancy syringes and strainers for fruit caviar too. Just look on their website under “spherification.” To find other sources online, search for “food-grade sodium alginate” or “molecular gastronomy.” http://www.modernistpantry.com/sodium-alginate.html

The iodine solution used in several activities is povidone-iodine, sold as an antiseptic at the drug store. The store brand is significantly less expensive than a brand name.

For testing conductivity of dissolved metal compounds, you can make a DIY conductivity tester such as this one:  http://www.exo.net/~emuller/activities/chemistry_summer_2007/Conductivity%20tester.pdf

Activity Photos with Notes

As refresher to help you remember the activities from the course, each of the PDF files below has a set of photos with notes for one of the student activities.
