Recognize and test how pH impacts the man-made and natural world. Raining on our Parade will help any young environmental scientist discover acid rain and ocean acidification, including the impact humans have in the occurrence of these two phenomena.

In this kit, students will test the pH of a variety of substances, corrode man-made and naturally occurring materials using mild acids, and model fossil fuel formation. Students will use these hands-on science experiments to delve into the phenomena of ocean acidification and acid rain.

  1. View changes to naturally occurring and man-made structures.
  2. Test the pH of substances all around them.
  3. Discover how acids corrode marble structures.
  4. Use pH to demonstrate the impact of acid rain and ocean acidification on our Earth.
  5. Make a model of fossil fuel formation to diver deeper into the root causes of acid rain and ocean acidification.
