F3 Visit Secondary Science Labs

31 May 2018

On Tuesday the children in F3 set off on an exciting excursion to our BIS HCMC Secondary Campus to visit a real Science lab. After a thought provoking assembly on recycling a few weeks ago, the children started to raise some interesting questions about the world around us. Who better to answer such questions? Our real scientists at the Secondary Campus.

The F3 children were curious to see what a real lab looks like and how it works. First we learnt about how to keep ourselves safe in the lab. The children eagerly put on their safety glasses and took a seat at the high lab desk.  On each table were test tubes of hydrochloric acid, the children carefully added a scoop of magnesium to create a chemical reaction, “look there are bubbles!” the children declared. The Scientists explained the bubbles were hydrogen gas. Afterwards, the children took turns using a splint to light the Bunsen burner. Lastly we combined these two activities, putting a splint to a test tube of hydrogen gas, we were surprised to hear it made a squeaky pop! 

We can’t wait to do some more experiments of our own in F3!
