PE Science VS Welcome to HHMI’s virtual exhibit, Vital Signs: Understanding Cardiovascular Diseases. It has been adapted from the museum-quality exhibit that complemented our 1998 Holiday Lectures on Science series. Each year HHMI hosts a 2-day lecture event for high school students at its headquarters in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Drs. Richard P. Lifton and Christine E. Seidman, both HHMI investigators exploring the genetic basis of disease, delivered the 1998 lectures, “Of Hearts and Hypertension: Blazing Genetic Trails.” We hope you will find the experience of this virtual exhibit to be rich and compelling and that it will serve as a valuable resource to you for science research projects or as a source of background information about cardiovascular disease.

Science C4K

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. Go take a look!

That’s it for the introduction. Now its up to you to click and have fun! Chem4Kids.com is one of many free science sites developed by the team that made Biology4KidsGeography4KidsCosmos4Kids, or Physics4Kids.

Now it’s time for you to dive into our chemistry pages and start learning. Remember, the site offers an introduction to the science of chemistry. If you’re not into graphics like home page image above, check out the site map where we list all of the pages of the site for you. Start clicking and have fun!
