Beech Class visits Costello

As part of Science Week, Beech Class were lucky enough to visit Costello Secondary School for a science lesson. We undertook a number of exciting science experiments in the Costello labs to test for gases. 


We really enjoyed testing for hydrogen using magnesium and hydrochloric acid. By lighting a wooden splint  we were able to make a squeaky popping sound in the test tube, highlighting the presence of hydrogen. We also felt like 'wizards' when testing for oxygen, as the presence of oxygen caused the glowing splint to relight.


Our science lesson made us excited for future trips to Costello!
