Ethanol, also known as ethyl alcohol or simply alcohol, is a colorless, flammable organic compound with the chemical formula C2H5OH. It is the type of alcohol commonly found in alcoholic beverages and has a wide range of applications beyond consumption.

Ethanol’s primary use is as a recreational beverage, with its consumption in alcoholic drinks being a significant cultural and social practice. However, it also has numerous industrial and laboratory applications.

In laboratories, ethanol is used as a solvent for a variety of substances, including chemicals, reagents, and compounds in various experiments. It’s a common choice due to its ability to dissolve both polar and nonpolar compounds, making it versatile for a wide range of applications. Ethanol is also used in DNA and RNA extractions and as a fixative in microscopy.

For many learners high school is not enough to prepare them for what they are to face at first year university. They find themselves completely overwhelmed and intimidated by what is expected of them to be able to do in a laboratory.

Unfortunately many learners who want to pursue science subjects go through this dilemma, few as they are because fact is SA is not producing enough learners who will become engineers, doctors, science researchers, let alone science innovators.

To address this, we developed a chemistry kits with 52 experiments for use by learners at home. This gives them an opportunity to gain hand-on exposure and engagement, confidence and understanding they need to study sciences further.

The kit comes with a manual explaining how science is experienced in daily life and therefore brings awareness of the application and usefulness of science, helping the learner relate to what they learn at school.

Some schools do have kits where only the teacher demonstrates the experiments and this is great, but you don’t master driving by watching the driving instructor, you must get in the driver’s seat yourself.
