We devised a half-day laboratory exercise for a group of 10th grade homeschooled students enrolled in an honors-level high school general chemistry course organized by a collective of homeschooling families associated with local Christian churches. Anecdotal evidence suggested that the students met the learning objectives of the exercise. The influence of the exercise on the students' perception of laboratory experimentation was assessed quantitatively by means of a brief pre- and post-encounter Likert-scale survey.
