Calcium Metal - Old vs New
CLEAPSS is aware that calcium metal may be supplied in larger pieces than previously provided. If your new supplies contain larger and/or less regularly-shaped chunks, choose pieces that are roughly similar in size and shape to the granules that you currently use.
The picture shows a sample of calcium purchased a couple of years ago on the left, and one obtained recently on the right.
Always trial samples before class use, and be aware that oxidised pieces may react less predictably.
Please look out for extended guidance on the new CLP Hazcard for calcium, which will be available soon. If you have any queries, please contact us.

"FALLING SEEDS AND BISCUITS"
The judging of the CLEAPSS 2013 Primary School competition "Falling seeds and biscuits" took place at CLEAPSS on November 1st
The pupils had to design and test a device that stopped a digestive biscuit breaking when it was dropped. Their teachers entered their "write ups" of the project.
