Stings and Things: an Investigation into pH
Produced by the Biotechnology and Biological Science Research Council (BBSRC), this activity could be used as an extension investigation into pH for 10 -11 year-olds. This resource is also relevant to the curriculum for 12 -13 year-olds. Students look at the pH of household materials and then apply their knowledge of acids and alkalis when investigating stinging nettles.
BBSRC is a part of Research Councils UK (RCUK).
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
