12.3.18 Group trip Kiryat Shmona

We visited the Danciger High School in Kiryat Shmona, near the Lebanon border, to explore the Chemical Garden phenomenon (see our Outreach page to learn why we don’t do “demonstrations”, but actual experiments, when we visit schools). The most incredible part was the ideas raised by these 9th grade kids – some of which we did not think of testing before that, and that revealed some unexpected observations! We rounded off the scientific part with a nice skating session in Metula (first time on the ice for our Indian postdoc Kasinath!), and some nice humus at Humus Eliyahu.
