A series of small-scale/micro-scale experiments used for the education of undergraduate students in chemical engineering courses have been developed. Based on the “small-scale/micro-scale” concept, the experiments were developed to provide an intuitive understanding of chemical processes, both by increasing the visibility of these chemical processes and by making the apparatus compact (desktop size). Nine experiments were developed that are relevant to the fields of thermal engineering, fluid engineering, unit operations, and reaction engineering. These experiments were introduced during the educational experiment course for undergraduates in the chemical engineering program.
