16 Things You Remember Doing in Science Class

Science class was great fun at school. Perhaps it was meant to be serious, but instead it was always full of fun and laughter. And some mishaps…

Here are 16 things you’ll no doubt remember doing in science class:

1. Stuck your fingers in the bunsen burner

Because it made you feel dangerous.

2. You also burned whatever you could get your paws on

via Indestructibles.com

May it be the rubber on the end of your pencil, a ruler or, well anything really, it was great fun trying to burn stuff when the teacher wasn’t looking.

3. You’d also forget to turn the gas off when you put them away

via Etfdailynews.com

There’s was always someone who forgot to turn off their gas tap making the place both stinky and potentially dangerous.

4. You wore your safety glasses on top of your head

via Chemistry.nus.edu.sg

Because that totally protected your eyes

5. You raced your classmates to ensure you weren’t left with the scabby lab coat

via Philosophyofscienceportal.blogspot.com

Because no one wants to wear that.

6. You then left your coat unbuttoned

via Medelita.com

Despite the fact that offered you no protection at all.

7. You lost focus during acid/base titrations and missed the colour change

via Sciencebuddies.org

So you had to make up your results.

8. In fact, you made up most of your results

via Netsuite.com

After-all, the experiments never worked.

9. You had to cut up fruit for a DNA experiment

via Kelleychisholm.wordpress.com

And you’d get into some amount of mess. And so would your partner as you’d HAVE to squirt some juice at them.

10. You’d find it impossible to see anything under a microscope

via Sri.com

What onion cells?! Of course, your neighbour would find their cells within 30 seconds.

11. You would get covered in iodine stain

via Scienceprofonline.org

Leaving your hands an icky yellow colour for hours. Yuck.

12. You’d break a beaker or flask

via Media.salon.com

And the whole class would jeer you.

13. Frequent breakers would earn a reputation

via Home.comcast.net

To the extent no one wanted to work with you. Even the teacher had you down as clumsy and dangerous.

14. You had to draw a map on paper after each experiment

via Chemlab.truman.edu

Every time that graph paper was put in front of you, you would forget how to do it. Then once you’d finished you’d look at your neighbour’s and see theirs was totally different.

15. Watching your teacher put potassium in water was amazing

via Youtube.com

But you still secretly hoped they’d put too much in and cause a small explosion.

16. You lived for the day an experiment involved helium

via Carondelt.pvt.k12.ca.us

Because there was a very small chance you’d get to ingest the helium and make your voice all squeaky.

So if I ever stop writing, it's because I've been in a lab experiment and turned into a super villain. I'm particularly interested in video games, comics and Harry Potter. Oh and I have lots and lots of cats.
