Years 5-12 Scientists of Waverley Competition

It's Science Week and Year 7 learned how to make 'Elephant's Toothpaste' with Ms Schoenmaker. Elephant’s toothpaste is an exothermic reaction - a reaction that releases heat energy. It is the decomposition of Hydrogen Peroxide into Water and Oxygen using yeast. When you add detergent the water foams up and makes a toothpaste looking foam which is warm to touch.
