With the global population spending over a half a billion dollars a year on commercial antacids, several companies are out there competing for a part of the business. In this activity, students will learn about some of the more common active components in over-the-counter antacids as well as investigate the rate of acid neutralization of five different antacids. Students will also compare the buffering ability of three different calcium carbonate based antacids. All antacid samples are included and the kit contains enough materials for fifteen groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.

Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities.
