The magic of science (high school)

by: Aurora triplett, elizabeth smith, jordan muraco

The Magic of Science class at the Mississippi School of Mathematics and Science (MSMS) Summer Enrichment Camp is a thrill for students interested in chemistry.

The class conveys the “magic” behind everyday life to the students through hands-on experiments. These experiments engage the students while helping them learn how carbon dioxide can be used to extinguish flames and which reactants cause flames to change color.

“I love Harry Potter and the class is based off of it,” said Elizabeth Holmes, MSMS Camper. “We took these different salts and put them on a stick over a burner and they changed colors.”
