TOPS students participated in MGCI’s annual Winterfest Activity Day to relax after a busy semester. Winterfest offers students the opportunity to try fun, new activities with their peers. Some of the options available this year were rock climbing, skiing, a downtown scavenger hunt, and a visit to the Toronto International Film Festival.
The grade 12 chemistry students completed their first lab of the year. Students prepared standard solutions of Copper (II) Sulfate and performed five 10 mL serial dilutions. The different solutions were then placed into a colorimeter to find a simplified version of Beer-Lambert’s Law. Beer Lambert’s Law was used to find the concentration of an unknown sample.
