Patrick Henry High School sophomore, Carlee T., recently competed at the State Fair of Virginia in Doswell, Virginia which was held September 30th through October 2, 2016. Carlee competed against many exhibitors from all across Virginia for awards and scholarships.
She took five heifers with her and brought back many awards including Grand and Reserve Champion Simmental, Grand Champion Bred and Owned, Division Champion in Sim-Angus, and Reserve Division Champion in All Other Breeds with a Limousin. Her Grand Champion Simmental was chosen as Reserve Supreme which placed her with the second place heifer out of the entire show/fair. As a result of this award, Carlee received a $500 scholarship. Congratulations Carlee!
Students in Mrs. Woosley’s AP chemistry class conducted a single replacement reaction experiment. In the lab, students removed the water from a mass of copper (II) chloride dihydrate, made a solution of the resultant anhydrous solid, and displaced the copper from solution using aluminum metal.
The products included copper metal, which was then filtered from solution and dried. The students had to determine the formula of the hydrate from the data and determine percent error based on the stoichiometry of the reaction and the actual yield of the copper metal. This lab requires the demonstration of numerous techniques and skills and encompasses the entirety of the stoichiometry concept in chemistry. Now, if we could only figure out what to do with all that copper…..
