Do you ever wish you had more time to spend on labs, that your students could be more independent in their progress through experimental procedures and that labs better connected to the things students experience in their lives? Flinn’s blended learning solution kits for chemistry address these questions by thoughtfully combining hands-on chemistry with digital enhancements.

In this lab, students make their own polymer. By turning it into a sensor, the conductive properties of the polymer are investigated and tested by exposure to acidic or basic environments.

Product Details

Polymers are an indispensable part of modern life. The word polymer is derived from two Greek words, polys (many) and meros (part). Polymers can be formed into fibers, drawn out into thin films or molded into a variety of solid objects. This lab lets students make their own polymer. By turning it into a sensor, the conductive properties of the polymer are investigated and tested by exposure to acidic or basic environments.

Completed for 30 students working in pairs.

Individual Flinn blended Learning Solution Kits include experiment supplies and 1 year of digital content access to one lab for 30 users. Digital features include: 

  • Anytime, anywhere digital access to prelab, technique and summary videos that help students focus on understanding core chemical concepts and progress through experiments independently.
  • Digital procedures optimized to work, with embedded assessments and real sample data and enough materials for 24–30 students working in small groups to complete each experiment
  • Unique takes on core chemistry concepts and clear connections to the things students experience in their everyday lives.
  • Virtual reality simulations that place students “inside the beaker” to connect the atomic and macroscopic scales and browser-based simulations that allow students to generate digital emission spectra and pH indicator tables. 
  • Built-in safety training—videos and assessments on pre-lab safety, proper PPE, safety equipment, procedure safety, chemical disposal, hazard recognition and emergency response.
