Our Achievements

  • What did you achieve by completing this project? When answering this question, consider both personal and academic development.
We achieved many things by completing this project. First of all, we learnt many new things about physics and chemistry, such as conservation of energy and what different laboratory chemicals and substances do. We also learnt how to manage our time properly, because we had to do experiments in a short period of time and also had only a day and a half to make slides for 2 projects. We also had a great experience 'being' an university student, living in the hall of residences and doing university-level projects. 
  • Post photographs and videos that you recorded during the project here.

  • Describe how the design of your experiment or the design of your product allowed you to achieve the projects desired outcomes.
The experiment we did was not very easy, which made us think harder and explore new ways of doing things, and we learnt a lot from doing that. It was too hard too, thus we were able to do the experiment without too much guidance from the professors or helpers.
  • Identify possible limitations (restrictions) to your project. When answering this question, consider the design of your experiment or the design of your product.
  • Suggest possible improvements that could be made in order to minimize the limitations that you have identified.
