Bulwell Academy - Science - Flame testing

Class 5 visited Bulwell Academy Science department to carry out some experiments. On this visit we used Bunsen Burners to perform a flame test of different chemical elements such as: Iron filings and copper sulphate. We found that when these different materials were burnt they produced different coloured flames (the iron filings even responded like a sparkler). We then compared these results to fireworks and considered how they might be created.
