Based on the reform of trimester in University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), the course of "The Popular Science Experiments of Chemistry in Life" was first opened during summer semester in 2014. This course was a public elective course, offered for the junior undergraduates who did not major in chemistry. The objective, contents, and characteristic of the course were introduced in this paper. The opening of the course would provide a chance for students to study chemistry via chemical experiments, which could further broaden their knowledge, achieve interdisciplinary integration, and combination of science and arts.

Key words: Summer semester, Chemical science, Experimental course, Public elective course, Construction and exploration
