There were strange goings on at the Young Einstein Club this week as red wine was mysteriously changed into water, raspberry milkshake and milk.  Was it a kind of magic? Has the Young Einstein Club hired a Potions Master?……

No, it is just a simple matter of Chemistry and a reminder that seeing is not always believing!!  The red wine was potassium permanganate and the changes were brought about using sodium thiosulphate and barium chloride solution.  The juniors had great fun measuring and mixing and the committee and Mrs Henry did a great job advising on the Chemistry!!
