Wow! What a fun-packed day of Chemistry at the STEM Summer Camp for girls today! The day began with some games, of which the new favourite is ‘Giants, Wizards and Elves’.
In the first STEM session of the day, the girls made a pH column in the Rainbow Fizz activity. The girls showed real skill in handling the chemicals and using the equipment.
After a break the group made their own indicators with vegetables – they found that red cabbage was the best, making an indicator that made distinctive colours with an acid, an alkali and a neutral solution.
This afternoon the girls were getting to the bottom of a mystery at Hogwarts. Who had poisoned Dumbledore? The girls used flame tests on samples from the suspects’ shoes to find out!
