Chemistry students at Pattonville High School did a microscale lab on Tuesday. They took one drop of 13 different solutions and mixed it with one drop of each of the other solutions to see if a reaction took place. The color changes for some were pretty dramatic.
“Microscaling labs are popular because the students still see the reaction, but it cuts way down on waste and resources needed for each lab,” chemistry teacher Rebecca Byrne said.
Students recorded their observations on a data sheet. When students return to class, they will name and write the formulas for the ionic compounds they created during the lab.
