In this experiment, students record what is seen when a Benham top spins at different speeds, comparing their perceptions with those of group members.
In this practical, students experiment with magnification by placing water drops on top of lettering.
In this experiment, students deliberately corrode copper, to produce a pigment called verdigris. Students can then explain their observations using their knowledge of redox reactions.
In this experiment, students learn how to make a lake pigment paint, and analyse how the properties of the materials have changed as a result of a chemical reaction.
In this experiment, students write a hidden message using invisible ink and watch what happens when a glowing splint touches their message.
In this experiment, students measure the temperature thermometers reach as they are placed throughout (and beyond) the spectrum of visible light.
In this experiment, students test a variety of substances to see if they can be used as an invisible ink.
In this experiment, students observe, describe and explain what happens when a multicoloured disc spins at a high speed.
