OKAY! As we have for fifteen years, let's start here...
So you're asking, what is CHEMISTRY? Well... Here's our best definition. Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes that take place with that matter.
Don't ask us why that matters. It just does. A lot. Everything on Earth, everything in our solar system, everything in our galaxy, and everything in the universe is made up of matter. Matter is the name that scientists have given to everything that you can touch, or see, or feel, or smell. Click to take a look!
That's it for the introduction. Now its up to you to click and have fun! COSMOS4KIDS is one of many free science sites developed by our team. You may have also used Biology4Kids, Geography4Kids, Cosmos4Kids, or Physics4Kids. We're also experimenting with a Spanish version of the site. You can see it at Química para Niños at Kapili.com. We even have a math site called NumberNut.com.
Now it's time for you to dive into our chemistry pages and start learning. If you're not into graphics like home page image above, check out the search tool (powered by Google) that will check our site for the chemistry information you need. Just type in a keyword or phrase and click the search button. The CHEM4KIDS results will be highlighted on the results page.
