A Sweet Visit to Cadbury World!

On Saturday 25th January, students enjoyed a visit to Cadbury World in Birmingham, where they were able to learn about the origins of the famous chocolate whilst trying their hand at tempering chocolate and (most importantly) had the opportunity to sample the chocolate for themselves! #BritishCulture #CadburyWorld #DayTrip
 
 
 




Chemistry Investigation

In this activity, learners carry out micro-scale reactions comparing the reactivity of four metals. The metals (magnesium, lead, iron, and copper) are placed in drops of solutions containing metal salts. Learners observe the rate and magnitude of reactivity between the two metals. A more reactive metal will displace a less reactive metal from its salt, resulting in metal deposition of the less reactive metal onto the more reactive metal surface. The magnetic properties of deposited iron will also be observed.  The micro-scale experiment uses a small amount of solution and metal, facilitating easy clean-up and minimising hazards, whilst the full series of experiments can be done on one sheet, helping direct comparison of the metals’ reactivities.
