A group of children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 spent the afternooon with Mr Wallace and Phil from INTECH Winchester. We carried out an investigation using test tubes to test a variety of materials. We had to use litmus paper to see if the chemicals were acidic or alkaline and help use decide what they were. It was great fun and we had to work together with children from other year groups as part of a team. Once we had decided what the chemiclas were, we used them to make bath bombs to take home!
We really enjoyed using proper scientific equipment to carry out real tests!
