Today we bought syringes.


A weird title, huh?

We went to First Friday Mass then bought some syringes for a Science experiment - from the book Teaching Chemistry With Toys.

The experiment? Marshmallows in a Syringe - demonstrating the effect of pressure on gas.

We learned about colloids and Boyle's Law.

Plus, the kids managed to eat a few mini marshmallows - now all I need to buy is dark chocolate, nuts, glace cheries, coconut and we can make rocky road!
