"Chemistry Class at the University of Tsukuba:"
an One Day Open Class for High School Students


〜 See for Yourself Leading-edge Chemistry at the University 〜

Experiments :Each student can try out one experiment from the list below:
・Glance at color photographs in the microscopic world
・Watch electron orbits
・Observe molecules
・Lights, colors, and chemical reactions
・Crystallize caffeine out of a cup of tea
・The power of enzyme: see potato enzyme degrade cancer-causing active oxygen
・Extract vanilla scent from curry powder: discover the chemical properties of ozone
・Examine the properties of "hemoglobin," a kind of protein
・"Make nylon," synthesizing and dyeing nylon
・Investigate causes of colors: colors and stereo structures of metal compounds
・Mystery of phase transitions
・Atoms which change the atomic numbers: radioactivity in our daily lives
・Extract light from cold molecules, secrets of the glow of the fireflies
・Make a Marseille soap that moisturizes and softens your skin
・Make a nano-soccer ball, fullerene, C60

"Chemistry Class at the University of Tsukuba" is our attempt to give high school students chances of experiencing the sense of wonder and fun in chemistry through actual experimentation. A number of people became interested in chemistry initially through experimentation, and pursued a career as chemist.
The experiments given at the "Chemistry Class" are designed from the latest research findings by the faculty members, so it will be interesting and easily understood by high school students. It is our hope that the participants in the open class will enjoy the experiments together with the other students that are interested in the same subject, as well as the atmosphere of the University of Tsukuba. (There will be a bus tour for those who wish to see the campus.)
