Our science-based topic of 'Potions' is full of exciting experiments. Last week we looked at what would happen when we mixed a solid and a liquid - bicarbonate of soda and vinegar. The results were really exciting. Oliver decided we should use 10g of bicarb with Malt vinegar and White vinegar. We then improved the investigation by using 15g of bicarb. They were able to calculate how much gas had been produced to inflate balloons.
