Chilling with Science

Year 10 students had a very nice experience when they embarked on a captivating journey into the realm of science that went far beyond their regular lessons. The excitement kicked in when they began exploring fascinating topics such as changes of state and covalent bonding, injecting an extra dose of curiosity into their day.

As the day progressed, the students found themselves immersed in hands-on activities featuring the enigmatic dry ice. This offered them a unique opportunity to put their newfound knowledge into practice through a series of engaging experiments. With bubbling enthusiasm, they eagerly investigated the mysteries of state changes, creating an atmosphere brimming with both fun and learning.

The joyous atmosphere was contagious, and it was evident that the entire experience was a hit among the students. Laughter and smiles filled the air as everyone revelled in the excitement of the day, making it not just a learning experience but a memorable and enjoyable one for all.

Student testimonial:

I had an extremely intriguing and interesting experience during my recent dry-ice experiments. Although the 'singing' spoon experiment was fascinating and made me question the science behind it, my favourite activity was the 'Bubble Tray' experiment, where water and fairy soap mixed together to make bubbles, and dry ice was added to it.

I learned many new properties of the substance, such as sublimation, and refreshed my knowledge of covalent bonding. Several safety precautions were in place, such as wearing goggles and insulated gloves, to ensure our safety.

Overall, this experience enhanced my knowledge and engagement in scientific activities and Chemistry itself.
