First we announced Science Bowl teams and Science Olympiad tryout information. The PowerPoint is here.
Today Tony and Steven demonstrated how to melt glass with strong oxyacids. They did a demonstration in which they placed glass items in the acid, and let it quickly dissolve. The video is below:
In reality, the glass didn’t melt or disappear. It simply became hidden in the oil due to the extremely close indexes of refraction of Pyrex glass and cooking oil.
If you missed our competitions presentation from a couple weeks back, here it is! This is the powerpoint that we showed during the meeting.

Science Bowl tryouts are just around the corner!
The first round will be held in the library next Tuesday, Sept. 24, from 3-4:30 pm. It will be a 200 question multiple choice test that covers a wide range of topics, ranging from Math to Astronomy. The top 30 scorers on this test will be selected to move on to the second round, which will take place on Thursday, Sept. 26, after school in Mrs Alonzo’s room. From there, the top 10 scorers will move on to the final round of elimination, in which the five members of Science Bowl Team A will be decided. That round will take place on Oct. 1 after school in Mrs Alonzo’s room. The date for the Team B buzzer tryout will be released at a later date.
If you have any questions about the tryout process, please come to our meeting this Friday and ask! We will be presenting about the various competitions that we have to offer and a big part of that will be Science Bowl.
During our first meeting, the officers demonstrated an interesting chemical reaction.
