Y7 End of term experiments?

Discussion in 'Science' started by calc20, Jul 7, 2015.

  1. You know that old chestnut...are we doing a practical today? Can we make things explode?

    I have one lesson left with my year 7 group when I can go off topic and do something different.

    There's plenty of demos to do, elephant toothpaste, mentos, methane bubbles etc but any ideas for anything that they can do themselves which in my eyes is completely safe but in their eyes is exciting and a bit risky?

    I'm sure I know plenty but end of term brain has set in!

    Many thanks!
  2. My technician has recommended making their own sparklers. Using wooden spills, and mg powder, and they can make them themselves. I'm yet to try it, but thats what I'm doing.

    Why not take part in this year's Global Experiment? Collaborate with students across the world by taking part in this experiment to investigate the properties of hydrogels.

    I'm doing the hydrogen 'pop' test, good old methane bubbles and pond dipping (as we're lucky enough to have a pond).

    Always fun to do flame colour tests, flying teabags, sugar rock cycle and popping film canisters, too :)
