Year 5 trip to The Royal society of Chemistry

‘1001 Science Journeys from Alchemy to Chemistry’ event

The Year 5 children had an amazing day at the Royal Society of Chemistry where they watched a live show about the famous Jabir ibn Hayyan and his successor, Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi, who developed new ways of classifying substances and organising chemical knowledge.  They then took part in 4 different workshops where they got the opportunity to make soap, test liquids to classify if they are alkaline or acidic amongst others. The children left feeling excited and inspired by how amazing Science can be.
