What Our Kids Say
Class 12 – June 2014
Science & Chemistry with Mr Boggiano
On Monday afternoon our class did 1½ hours of experiments with Mr Boggiano. There were five activities we all had to do.
Our group did a surface tension experiment, where we had to get a paper clip to stay on top of the water without sinking.
In experiment 2, we shone a torch on some rocks to see if they could store the light and re-emit light.
Another experiment was making a weak acid using salt and vinegar. We put old copper coins in and it made them shiny.
One Monday afternoon we did science/chemistry with Mr Boggiano. We did this for 1½ hours.
These are some activities we did:
- We did acid-coins, where we dipped coins in vinegar to make them shiny.
- We also did surface tension, where we had to put a paper clip in water and make it try to float.
- We also did glow in the dark rocks, where we had to get rocks and shine the torch on the rocks for 10 seconds.
- We did test tubes, where we had to put some blue in and then we put floor cleaner in to make it yellow to test if it was an acid or a base.
