Grade 8 Chemistry in Action

How do we engage our curious MYP Grade 8 students to learn chemistry? By conducting chemistry experiments where they can produce small controlled explosions.

Our Grade 8 students delved into a captivating lab experiment, testing various acids on metals to witness their reactions firsthand. Now, they're gearing up to design their own experiments, probing the impact of acid concentrations on selected metals

With hydrogen gas as their guide, in addition to observing reactions, they're also quantifying them.

Fun Fact: Did you know that detecting the presence of hydrogen gas is as simple as bringing a light match near its vicinity? This triggers a small explosion, adding a thrilling twist to scientific experiments!
