In the final week of half term, as part of the Acids and Alkalis topic, first year chemistry classes took place in everyone’s kitchens as the boys made acid-base indicators from various plants including red cabbage, tulip petals, blueberry juice and red grape juice. The boys had fun finding out which indicator worked best whilst only mildly trashing their parents’ kitchens! Red cabbage proved to be the best indicator and many boys rose to the challenge of using various household substances of different pH values to create a rainbow of colours.
