      I liked the experiments where we put sodium in water, the other was burning the various transition elements to do the flame tests, as different metals produce various flames, like green or purple or blue

      Hi Ryan,

      Like Joe, I enjoyed those chemistry experiments that went bang! But probably the coolest/grossest experiment was in biology when we looked at a set of pigs lungs in class, and we could blow into them to see them inflate.

      It was weird, cool, gross and mad all in one!

      We made nylon which is one of the materials in tights so that was pretty cool. I like anything that gives me a pretty colour though.
