Future scientists in action: Santa Ana School in Calatayud organises practical science activity for students with the ERASMUS + CCDE Project

The students of Santa Ana school in Calatayud have enjoyed today an exciting scientific experience in which they have learned about chemical reactions in a fun and interactive way.

This has been made possible through the Comarca de Calatayud with the collaboration of the GEInnova team that develops the European project “Circular chemistry in the digital era” to improve science learning in the classroom in a practical and fun way.

The activity consisted of filling some bottles with lemon juice and others with vinegar and then placing a balloon in the mouth of the bottle, which contained sodium bicarbonate. By mixing the two ingredients, a chemical reaction took place, generating carbon dioxide, a gas that inflated the balloon without the need to blow it up.
The students were able to watch in amazement as the balloon inflated by itself, while learning about the basic principles of chemistry and physics. The activity allowed them to understand concepts such as chemical decomposition, gas formation and pressure.

Santa Ana School in Calatayud is committed to an innovative and experiential education that motivates students to learn and discover the world around them. Through these types of activities, the school seeks to encourage scientific curiosity, critical thinking and creativity in its students.
