Volcanoes erupt at Braybrook!

Year 9 pupils have been learning about The Periodic Table and patterns of reactivity so we completed an experiment with cross curricular links to Volcanoes and the structure of the Earth they have been studying in Geography.

They had to demonstrate independent learning skills, safe scientific technique and an ability to ask questions based on the real world to complete the investigation.

They used different chemicals to recreate the effect of a volcano erupting and the investigation required them to produce and order of reactivity like Mendeleev did when he created the Periodic Table.

The experiment demonstrated some interesting results and the conclusion was the most reactive components were vinegar and baking soda. These results were observed based on the time it took for the reaction to take place, the size of the oxygen bubbles created and the overall mess created by the reaction!!
