Edible Atom Workshop – Maple

Maple Class were able to take part in a remote workshop with Rutherford Appleton on Edible Atoms.  As part of this we looked at lots of objects under microscopes to see what they are made up of.  We found out that everything is made up of atoms which contain neutrons, protons and electrons.  As part of this we explored the periodic table and created our own models of elements such as Carbon, Hydrogen, Boron and Nitrogen which of course we enjoyed eating at the end.
