Students in Mrs. Miller’s and Mrs. Tegge’s class at Glen Este Middle School have been enjoying the “sillier side” of science.

Working in labs to study chemical changes, students have been combining different chemicals to create a new one – silly putty.

The students mix glue and sodium borate to create a chemical reaction. The substances that combine to make silly putty take on different physical properties in their new state.

Through this, students learn to describe that in a chemical change new substances are formed with different properties than the original substance.

Lauren Bell and Destiny Tubbs enjoy their silly science experiment.
