News and currents adventures from Inver National School, Inver, Co. Mayo



We had lots of fun building crystals recently. At first we examined the shape and texture of the Epsom salt crystals. We then added warm tap water to dilute the salt and also a little bit of food colouring. After leaving the solution in the fridge overnight, we noticed that the shape of the crystals had changed. They were no longer cubic. They had grown and had become smooth needle crystals. It was lots of fun!
