Flame Test Science with Sam Gibbs

One of the topics under Forensic Science (what we're doing at Co-op) is Flame Test. We thought it'd be better to find a teacher to teach this rather then messing with fire ourselves. We were fortunate that Mr. Sam Gibbs was in town and he agreed to come do the class for us. Boy was it a fun, crazy, fiery class. This is the second time we've attended his class. The first was during the aerospace workshop in TUDM with him last year, kids loved it so much! Well, needless to say, they stayed tuned during his whole session, had lots of laughs, and learnt lots!!


Learning about atoms, photons, energy and elements.

Flame test...guess, which element in here?

 WE've also covered topics such as Chromatography, Soil Analysis, blood typing, hair analysis, analysis of teeth and footprints,

 Crime Scene analysis

 Finger prints

and DNA

Too many details, so this summary will suffice. Basically, kids love the hands on learning, especially when it involves experiments, and solving crime!
