Year 7 Crystal Competition


This term the Year 7 students are completing a Science unit on Separation of Mixtures. To coincide with this unit, the students are competing in a crystal growing challenge. To complete this activity students will use their knowledge and understanding of solutions.


This week the students set up their Borax solutions, choosing what strength of solution to make and what materials to use to grow their crystal on. Participating students will come into the science labs at lunchtime to measure their crystals growth over the next two weeks. The aim of the challenge is to make the biggest crystal, measured by weight. There will be house points awarded to the top teams.


Good luck to all the year 7’s involved


Mrs Corkin
