April 13, 2018C.A. Gray students perform science experiments

C.A. Gray Junior High Start Off Testing with a Bang

To get testing started off with a bang (literally), 8th grade physical science students observed a round of outdoor chemistry labs at C A Gray Junior High. One demonstration included the use of liquid nitrogen to display how molecules come together and expand as heat is removed or added. Students observed how balloons react to the substance as well as how quickly it changes flower petals from soft to brittle. A big thank-you goes out to Airgas of Tifton for donating the liquid nitrogen and to Tammy and Jeff at Moultrie Walmart for donating the flowers.The above-mentioned “bang” is courtesy of the reaction between a cube of sodium, which is an alkali metal, into a tub of water.  Students also witnessed a “black smoke snake” that was created with burned powdered sugar and baking soda. The most colorful reaction involved pouring sodium iodine into a mixture of 35% peroxide and dish soap. The giant erupting foamy blob released heat as it oozed over the sidewalk. Check out videos of these experiments on C A Gray’s webpage here: http://tinyurl.com/cagrocks1
