Bunsen Burner Experience

A few weeks ago, all students from 7C lit their first Bunsen burner. Many students found that it was easy to light a Bunsen burner, other students had lit their first match and nearly all of the class were exhilarated by the experience of the experiment. After the Bunsen burner was lit, we were shown how turning the air hole open displayed the roaring blue flame. Keeping the air hole closed meant that there was a quiet yellow safety flame. Many of us can’t wait until we get our amazing Bunsen burner licenses and most of us, hope it is very soon. The experimentation was a great accomplishment and everyone in 7C had a tremendous time.
