Safety first! Students line up and prepare their goggles to wear before heading over to their lab stations.

PreAP chemistry classes tested different solutions of chemical salts to find out what their chosen mystery chemical compound was. They flame tested a total of six sticks bathed in a solution of salts before they observed their mystery salt. After observing the six unique colors, they burned their mystery compound and based off of their prior observations, they could determine which chemical the mystery salt was. Chemistry teachers use this experiment in the classroom to show students how the outward characteristics of chemicals are affected and changed under certain circumstances. This experiment is done annually in all PreAP chemistry classes at the beginning of the second six weeks.
