Chemistry students conduct chemical reaction experiments

The sophomores in Mrs. Emily Shield’s chemistry course conducted lab experiments of their choice to showcase their understanding of proper lab safety and scientific procedures.
“This lab was heavily based on the procedures and what happens before the experiment rather than the actual presentation,” sophomore Sheena Wakisaka said.
The students were expected to follow safety lab requirements to demonstrate their attained knowledge from previous class lessons. Learning to conduct their own experiments allowed them to experience chemical reactions first-hand.
“The students have to write lab procedures with every lab they do and it’s best that they learn it now, so that they’re comfortable with every lab from here on out,” Shields said.
