Over two weeks this half term students from Year 7 competed to make the best copper oxide crystals. The process involved mixing sulphuric acid and copper oxide, and heating it over a bunsen flame until it bubbled. This was then left to cool, and a few days later the result was a beautiful sight: crystals the colour of a Caribbean ocean.
Crystals were judged on size, colour and consistency, and after intense scrutiny Holman came first, with Foxell and Thorne following - well done to everyone who took part.
