We have access to a program called "You Be the Chemist" and are looking for opportunities to work with elementary school age children and their instructors in the area of our Delta, British Columbia facility. The program is a series of over 30 chemistry lessons using familiar household items like, spoons, balloons, string, soap, paper clips, salt, pepper, rubber bands, milk, etc to demonstrate chemical reactions in a fun and very safe way.

The lessons are designed to be classroom friendly except for a couple that require an outdoor setting. Many of the lessons demonstrate immediate reactions while a few others require 2-3 hours to elapse before viewing the results.

Our company will provide assistance in acquiring the materials required for a limited number of lesson plans at a limited number of schools. Pl;ease contact me at if you are interested in bringing this program to your school.
