Day 98 of 180

sodium

 

Today I took the chemistry classes outside and we put a fairly large piece of sodium into a tub of water – it fizzed, caught on fire and them exploded…it sounded like a gun shot.  Kids liked it and hopefully will use that as a reminder of chemical reactions! (This pic is not from our demo – all I have for today is video)
