On December 2nd, as the winter wind was howling on the Brentwood campus, curiosity lead the Grade 11 Chemistry AP students to a science experiment under the instructions of Mr Amiel. Students with aprons and goggles were keen to apply their knowledge in a real science scenario. They used theories from Dalton’s Law and Moles to predict the results of the lab. 

Their task is to identify the state of oxide of copper by extracting pure copper from copper oxide using Bunsen burners. “These sparkling flames reminds me that science is so cool” reflected one passionate student. Looking at these excited students, Mr Amiel observed that :science is not only about absorbing knowledge, but also real life practice.”
