Last week, the 8th grade students had the special opportunity to work as scientists for two days in the laboratories of the Gläsernes Labor in Buch. On one day they participated in Chemistry workshops to try different methods of extracting scents from various natural substances, and in one instance, synthetically generate esters that artificially mimic the scents of fruits and sweets.

On the other day, students took part in Biology workshops and learned plenty about the blood and heart. Our students used a light microscope to observe blood cells, carried out the experiments to find out how the different concentrations of oxygen and carbon dioxide affect blood color, and finally got to dissect the heart of a chicken.
