Experimenting in the Science Lab! (1st February 2017)

Over this past term, our KS3 and KS4 pupils have been experimenting and investigating different ideas in the Science lab.

Year 7 and 8 pupils have been studying acids and alkalis, and recently partook in an experiment to learn about the Universal Indicator. Pupils had fun experimenting with the Universal Indicator and discovered the different (colourful) ranges of pH levels. Year 9 pupils have been looking at chromatography, a technique for separating dyes.

Pupils have also been learning about water stratification, the body’s organ systems and static electricity (using the Van de Graff generator).
