Potions (Suze's Project T1 2020)

  • Posted on: 7 February 2020
  • By: SuzeKeys

We will be exploring Chemistry using a range of experiments and activities, including "kitchen chemistry". We will focus on "making potions".

Chemistry is "the study of matter and the changes it undergoes".

Students will: "Observe, describe, and compare physical and chemical properties of common materials and changes that occur when materials are mixed, heated or cooled."

And: "Find out about the uses of common materials and relate these to their observed properties"

We will (hopefully) have access to the science labs and equipment during our sessions.

We will have 10 sessions over 5 weeks where we will look at a variety of things including:
What is chemistry?
Solids, Liquids, Gases.
Melting, Boiling.
Mixtures and separating mixtures.
Solutions.
Crystals.
Acids and bases.
Salts and soaps.
Water.
Perfume - Student choice.
