Another awesome Science session at St Pauls today. Today we were setting up our crystal solution. We dissolved a solid into warm water and then used a bunsen burner to evaporate and reduce down the solution by about a third. This solution is now sitting in the classroom as we wait for it to completely evaporate off. From here we hope to create an even larger crystal. Watch this space!
Question to ask your child: Why did you not evaporate all of the solution using the bunsen burner?
The evaporated solution, waiting for further evaporation.
