AP Chem Lab Launches Year
Mrs. Smith’s AP Chem Lab class launched the year with an experiment measuring chemical reactions. The students used the reaction created when baking soda is mixed with vinegar in a film canister to propel the rockets they had created out of manila folders. Their rockets varied in size and structure. The students’ goal was to see if they could get a rocket to take off one meter off the ground, and they had a little fun while doing it! Mrs. Smith said it was one of the most entertaining labs she has ever done with a class.
