UC hosts crystal growing competition

By Barcham - 21 August 2013 4

More than 3,000 kids have created their own crystals to compete in UC’s crystal growing competition, which is a pretty fantastic thing.

The crystals will be displayed at Questacon also, which is another pretty fantastic thing.

I did one of these as a wee lad, grew a monster copper sulfate crystal. More kids should be encouraged to discover that science can be fun.

What purity are we talking? I’m all about the blue…..

(I bet that kid has a mean fist bump)

I hope they let the fairies go, after they made the crystals…

What a lovely story. Well done Luke and the other children.
