Yesterday, on Thursday, 9e of B24 went to the Clever@TU-Berlin Lab. As we at the B24 don´t have a lab, we were very excited to see what it is like to be in a real science Lab.  We met up at 9 am at the Technical University and were welcomed by Dr. Merkel, the Head of the Lab and the inventor of the project “chemistry-experiments for secondary school students in an academical lab environment at the TU Berlin”. Even though some where late ; ), we managed to get into the lab by 9.10 am. Then an assistant of Dr. Merkel, Julia, handed us lab coats and safety goggles....

We paired up in groups of two and each group got its own working space since the lab was pretty large. We had to do most of the experiments ourselves that everybody really enjoyed. It was fascinating:  We did experiments on crystallization and recrystallization as well as chemical and electrical energy and how to convert them. We copper plated iron nails (very cool) and we made sugar coal out of glucose by adding acid. We made a log of most of the experiments in order to discuss it in chemistry class later in a deeper, chemical sense. At 11.25 am, we went to lunch at the dining hall of the TU. The food was as stunning as the experiments. The TU generally is an interesting place and has a beautiful environment to study and learn. Personally, I think that the lab day, which already ended at 2 pm, was extremely helpful and we should do Clever@TU-Berlin Lab days twice a year, it really makes clever.
