Yesterday my students were in the process of actually doing their experiments! I have to admit, I thoroughly enjoyed watching them make giant messes and have fun, but it was quite hard to keep track of everyone at once. Each class had at least 5 different groups doing experiments, most of which invariably included throwing things, water, food coloring, baking soda/vinegar explosions, etc. Unfortunately, there weren’t any major eureka moments to report, but I’m hoping that the students will be able to pull together their background research and experimental data for some top-notch presentations next week. Fingers crossed!
