Skip to 0 minutes and 9 secondsOur chemical reaction video, will demonstrate what will happen when you add diluted ethanoic acid to sodium hydrogen carbonate. Their household names are vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.

Skip to 0 minutes and 33 secondsThe sodium hydrogen carbonate has reacted with the acid and has released carbon dioxide gas, causing a fizzing sound.

Secondary science example (student-created)

In the film above, we see a simple student experiment created using vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.

It’s easy to see how a bank of experiment films could be created to demonstrate different chemical reactions.

What advantages might there be for student learning in having planned, scripted, shot and reviewed this film? What potential uses might the resulting film have for teaching and learning? Add your thought to the comments section.
