October Photo Project: Day 05 – Beaker

DSCN0154

Biology lab today!  We looked at osmosis and diffusion.  My partner and I got stuck with the pizza-stone hot plate today so our water took forever to boil, so this picture is mostly commemorating that grand event.  We then tested for glucose and starch; while waiting for the water to boil we also watched what sodium chloride does to plant cells.  I would have taken a picture of that because it was waaaaayyyyy cooler, but I wasn’t feeling quite brave enough to see if the camera would work taking a picture of what you can see in a microscope.  (I do not like disappointment.)

All that being said, there’s a reason why you get really thirsty after eating a ton of pizza or sushi.  Especially sushi pizza.
