On the 14th December, me and Samnang Hor taught a junior STEM class about balancing chemical equation. So we come up with some fun activities for them to practice like using the simulation and also Kahoot. We start off by trying to understand what they have learned than explain them why do we need to balanced chemical equation. We need to balance the chemical equation because the mass of the atom can’t be created nor destroyed according to the law of conservation of mass.
