Students Bogdana Viznovych, Peyton Bigelow and Natasha Waslik, all sophomores, enjoy some slime time in a recent Honors Chemistry class taught by Science Teacher Elizabeth Nicolosi. Students created slime throughout the week in order to discover physical and chemical changes. Glue, water and Borax were used, and even food dye, so that the students could choose what color their solution would be. The sophomores said they had a blast mixing the ingredients and playing with the finished product afterwards. They took notes on substance changes for a full learning experience during the lab. “It was a really nice opportunity to learn about chemistry but have fun at the same time,” Bigelow said. Nicolosi said that the annual experiment went well and everyone loved it. (Photo courtesy of Peyton Bigelow)
