Ocean Acidification & the PH Scale

This chemistry lab for primary schools looks at ocean acidification and the pH scale and the link between excess CO2 production and acidification.

Through hands-on experimentation and inquiry-led activities, students explore the fascinating world of chemistry gaining a clear understanding and discovering real-world application of concepts such as the pH scale and how it can be changed. Children work scientifically with the opportunity to use a full lab kit, including pH indicators and probes.

Learning outcomes
- Working scientifically
- Use of technology
- Understand a real-world application of chemistry
- Clear understanding of gas production and disruption of pH balance
- Materials and change

All materials are supplied.
