Making Science Colorful Secondary Section (2014-15) WIS , Malad

                                          Making Science Colorful

Witty International School organised a paper chromatography session for the students of Grade VII. Paper Chromatography is a complex looking but simple process of separating and analyzing the solvents in dyes.
                 The students had great fun all the while learning about pigments and solubility. Chromatography is defined by many as the advent of art in chemistry. “ I generally don’t like chemistry but the art hidden in this mundane science, helped me forget my hatred , even if it was for a short time.’’, agrees Yashvi Agrawal, a student of Grade VII.   
           The purpose of this activity was to observe how chromatography can be used to separate mixtures of chemical substances . Students enjoyed the combination of science and art.
        All the students agree whole – heartedly that this was one of the best experiences ever. ‘’ Chemistry has never been this fun’’, was all that the students had to say about chromatography. This is the first time that a scientific approch has received such laurels. For which I can only say , Kudos to the science teachers !
