Learn about acids and bases by using, you guessed it, cabbage juice!

This is an online hands-on workshop for students to explore and learn about acids and bases by using cabbage juice as a pH indicator. Test items from around your house to find out if they're an acid or a base! And learn why what's inside cabbage juice is important to our diets.

Jacob Monash moved to Canada from New Zealand 3 years ago. In New Zealand, he obtained his PhD in Biology at an institute that figures out how to make healthier varieties of fruits and vegetables. In Canada, he worked briefly at the BC Cancer Center and now runs his own business.

This event will be held on Zoom. For the safety and privacy of all participants the link you receive is just for you, thank you.

Scientists and Innovators in Schools (SIS) is a volunteer-based program that helps address British Columbia's need for more scientists, engineers, technologists, technicians, creative technology professionals and innovators to promote students' interest in these areas. Our goal is to inspire students with exciting, in-school presentations by career mentors.
