Year 5 Visit the L'Oreal Laboratory

Last week Year 5 had the opportunity to visit the L'Oreal Laboratory at the Royal Institution.


Once at the Laboratory we put on our lab coats, were introduced to all the equipment we would be using in the Lab and were excited to get started! We started the day by testing different acids and alkalines to see what their PH levels were. We then used citric acid and sodium bicarbonate to make bath bombs. We enjoyed deciding what scents and colours we would add to our mixtures. In the afternoon we created our own lip balms by combining bees wax and oils along with a scent and a colour. Year 5 had a fantastic day. They were able to use their scientific knowledge and enjoyed leaving the laboratory with the cosmetic items they had made.
