As part of their Matter topic, our Year 7 students experienced the Screaming Jelly Baby experiment in their Science lessons with Ms Figiel in November to help them learn about chemical and physical changes of reactions.

They watched the chemical reaction between molten potassium chlorate and the oxidation of the sugar in a jelly baby with some impressive results, showing the amount of energy contained in one sweet!

The students were also able to observe some of the chemical changes that occur during a reaction, including the production of light, sound and gases.
