All in the name of Science!

 Story image 1_0

Science is all about curiosity and discovery. It is also about understanding different cultures and how they interact with the environment. This week in Chemistry II, students took on a multicultural experience in science through a taste challenge. In Japan, people will often eat a small fruit called umeboshi, which literally translates to Japanese Salt Plum and is one of the saltiest and sourest foods that exists. Some students did not think it was that bad, but some of their lucky volunteers did not feel the same! Check out their faces!

Chemistry II has not only been up to making people make funny faces but also studying about the various properties of gases through experimentation with some everyday items, like antacid tablets and how they work and what kind of reactions will release gases like carbon dioxide and hydrogen. It has been an explosive experience!
