  1. I expect to lean about the interactions between different chemicals and how thay can be used in everyday life or a survival situation.

  2. I’m excited to mix chemicals and see what happens! I’m ready to learn the periodic table and different chemical formulas. I’m looking forward to becoming more comfortable in the lab, like with massing solids and lighting a Bunsen Burner.
