Hetton School Science

Class 5 went to Hetton School for a Science lesson.

In the Science lab we had to wear safety goggles and we used lots of different equipment including conical flasks and filter paper. We mixed acid and powder until it was completely dissolved. Then we filtered the solution and poured it into a dish. After 2 weeks we should have some crystals. 

After that we had lots of fun with the Van De Graaff generator. The static electricity it produced made our hair stand on end!
Finally we watched an experiment called Elephant's toothpaste - yellow oozing foam was created as a result of a chemical reaction.
We thought our science lesson was really cool!
