Homeschoolers will love bringing the laboratory into their kitchens with The Cambridge Academy's high school chemistry course.  Throughout the year, students will discover the way matter interacts with various physical forces and changes state.  Through tests and fun experiments students will learn about the composition of subatomic, atomic, and molecular chemistry, discovering how electrons, neutrons, and protons dance in harmony to create elements.  Homeschool students will become familiar with the Periodic Table of the Elements, recognizing the molecular makeup of familiar household chemicals.
