Chemistry Projects For Students

Chemistry deals with compounds and elements, or the molecular structure of any matter. Chemistry seeks to examine substances to see what these are composed of and how these will react under different conditions. Students enrolled for Chemistry courses in colleges and universities are expected to take up projects to enhance their knowledge and develop their presentation skills that will help them later to find jobs. Below is a list of interesting Chemistry projects which students can choose from:

  1. To Prepare a Smoke Bomb
  2. Human Battery Power: showing that a human body can be used as a battery by producing an electrical current.
