Re: Eco friendly Baggie Science?

Using a balloon would be the same as a zip lock bag as in non reusable.

We have clear canister that I got off ebay, although not a see through as a zip lock bag you can still see it fizz up.

Hard to be able to cover all areas of reuse, reduce and recycle.

Re: Eco friendly Baggie Science?

You can do this with a photo canister type cartridge and the lid pops off. You don't get to see it expand though.

Citric Acid and Baking Soda Cold Pack

If you are after a cheap and quick experiment to show endothermic chemical reaction than this one is for you. It is quick and cheap what more can we ask for. I did this in a beaker with thermometer so the students would be able to see the temperature drop. It did fizz up heaps so use a 400ml beaker ...

Re: Chem store vents

Fume Hood should be checked every 12 months. We just have a guy arrive and checks it annually. But I must say one has been not working since the day I started which is over 18 years ago and every year they take a photo and say we will organise for it to be fixed.
