Safety Story

Today, Monday 9th 2019,  I walked into class and i asked the teacher why do scientist keep deadly viruses when they already had a vaccine for it? what happens if the virus goes airborne again? Mr. Robinson was speechless he didn’t know what to say so he just carried on. Anyways I am so excited but scared at the same time to start this project for our science class because I am starting my first experiment that we have been planning for quite a while now, we planned on making a volcano. When we got to science class Mr.Robinson was explaining all the safety procedures, on this volcano experiment. we first started sculpting our volcano out of paper mache, once we finished building our volcano we waited a few days to let it dry.


while we waited we also made a few tiny versions of the volcano to test the experiment and get the right amount of ingredients. The ingredients we used was vinegar, water, dish soap, and baking soda.  When it was time to start our experiment I put on my safety glasses to protect my eyes from materials or any chemicals.


I went to grab a beaker to mix my ingredients in, a graduated cylinder for measuring the liquids, and an eye dropper to transfer the liquids easier I also got a funnel to pour the liquids so nothing spills. After i got everything I mixed the vinegar, water and dish soap in the beaker. Then i used a spoon to mix the baking soda until it turned into a liquid.


then I used the eye dropper and the funnel to pour the mixed vinegar, water, and dish soap into my volcano. Explosion time it was time to pour the baking soda into the volcano and boom the volcano experiment was a success. I looked over to my friend Caleb and when he tried his it exploded into his eye he wasn’t wearing his safety glasses properly i rushed him to the eye wash station and it worked he was feeling better already.

  1. You did a fantastic job on your safety story. I really appreciate your attention to detail in communicating your understanding of safety issues in the Science class. Great job including all the symbols and equipment for which I asked. Good work mentioning an ethical dilemma in the story as well.
