A GRAIN OF SALT: ISN'T IT IONIC?

How does salt dissolve in water? What is a precipitate? Why is salt essential for health? 

 

Table salt, or sodium chloride, is important to human history - and human health - in many ways. In this interactive presentation led by Professor Howard Stone of Princeton University, we will learn about the many properties of salt that make it so universally useful. Children will help demonstrate the chemistry of salt, from solubility to conductivity. Audience participation is a big part of this interactive show, and every child receives a free t-shirt.
