Main event ERN 2023 -UA-Workshop-“Everyday science”

Everyday science. The activity consists of the demonstration of three short experiments.

Schedule, Workshop

The activity consists of the demonstration of three short experiments:

  1. Measuring pH: the pH of different solutions and food products that are commonly found at home is measured. In this way, participants are introduced to basic concepts about pH and how to measure it.
  2. The fleeing pepper: pepper is added to a dish with water. Then, the children dip a soap-covered finger in it to see how soap changes the properties of water.
  3. The suction glass: participants discover what happens when a candle consumes all the oxygen inside a glass and how this relates to several processes in nature.
