Learn how to practice separation techniques using kitchen cupboard equipment

Knowing how to separate solids from liquids is a really important science skill. In fact, most chemistry experiments have some sort of separation in them. We’re looking at how we can use some kitchen cupboard equipment to practice these skills at home. Have a go yourself and don’t forget to share your results with us #ChemistryInYourCupboard

You will need:

  • Colander
  • Sieve
  • Muslin/Cheese Cloth
  • Bowls
  • Water
  • Solids to mix into the water (rocks, dry rice, dirt)
