The second graders had the amazing opportunity to witness a presentation given by members of the chemistry department from the University of Virginia. The students had been studying physical and chemical reactions in class, and the UVA chemists encouraged this discussion by further explaining the differences between the two reactions. They guided the students through several experiments, while identifying the different reactions and reasons for the changes. The students were inspired by the visit to create their own experiments. Come see our versions of the soda geyser experiments in the Lower School hallway!
