This afternoon we went up to Golborne High School to have a science lesson with Miss Hillidge.

Following on with our CSI unit, we tested some of the white powder that was found at the crime scene. We used a bunsen flame to test the combustion colour of the different samples.

We had samples A, B and C which we needed to test so we could match it to that found at the crime scene.

After testing the three materials, we discovered that Sample A matched that found – Miss Kryss Kross is looking very likely as our prime suspect!

Miss Hillidge also showed us three other metals (iron, copper and magnesium) that are used in fireworks – we looked at how they produced a colour when put within the flames.
