Amazing Science in Room 13

For the last few weeks we have been working at school and at home on our science projects. Here are a few pictures and videos of students testing their experiments at school.

My science experiment is called Milky Magic. I choose this experiment because it looked like fun and I loved the colours.

My experiment is about Acids and Basis. I liked the idea of changing colours so I choose purple cabbage leaf water as the indicator.

Science Experiments

Today our science experiment was all about Fizz Balloons. 

We needed:
•baking soda
•a balloon
•a plastic bottle
•some vinegar

Method:
1. Pour 3 to 5cm of vinegar into a plastic bottle.
2. Use a funnel and add about 2 tablespoons of baking soda to the vinegar.
3.Quickly place the neck of the balloon over the end of the bottle.
4. Watch wha happens.

Why is this happening:
Baking soda is a substance called a base. Vinegar is a substance called an acid. When bases and acids combine they create new substance. In this experiment carbon dioxide is created. Carbon dioxide is a gas; the gas leaves the bottle and blows up the balloon.

Here is our video to show you.
