I remember my eagerness to get into a “real” science lab when I was in Grade 6, and the excitement of handling test tubes and chemicals. Imagine my pleasure when I got to introduce the Avasara Leadership Fellows to the amazing science labs at ALF last week! This was the first time that they had performed an experiment in a laboratory–although they have done quite a few “dry” experiments so far in ALF, and some have seen their teachers perform demonstrations at school.
We had a great time learning about equipment, and how to measure and pour accurately and safely. In just 50 minutes, the girls practiced measuring and pouring, and followed a complex method to come up with these colourful results:
We can hardly wait to get back into the lab!
