The real thing



Simon was very excited today about his first real chemistry workshop. He has set a few experiments this week (including yesterday at his gifted club), but today it was finally serious business. His teacher, a retired chemist and father of a good friend of mine, comes all the way from Holland once a month. This month’s topic was “salts” and resulted in a few beautiful and not so beautiful colours. We also learned one shouldn’t drink copper, even though they did exactly that in the times of Francois Rabelais.
