Fun In The Lab Update

On 11/09/2013 I shared a post about a college biology experiment my daughter, Shantel, has for a final project for that class. She decided to do an experiment on hair relaxer’s and the effect they have on skin/tissue and the environment… I shared with you that I was “drafted” to help Shantel last Friday with the experiment by helping her weigh the raw chicken that Shantel decided to use as her sample for the effect hair relaxer’s have on tissue… The raw chicken was weighed before it was put into the hair relaxer solution, then weighed again, on Friday, by me,,,  after the raw chicken had been in the hair relaxer solution for twenty-four hours…

The plan was for me to come back this Wednesday, at 7:00 a.m. to help Shantel weigh the chicken again, after it had been rinsed, and allowed to dry for five days…  That was the “plan…”

Well, today, Shantel came home from school and told me her chemistry  professor said she had to weigh the chicken over the holiday weekend, because she got a call that the whole lab was reeking of chemicals and a VERY foul smell…. Guess what… It was Shantel’s experiment… OMG!!! Her professor said she had to have fans brought in and running for two days just to get all the foul smells out of her lab…

The raw chicken, combined with the hair relaxer chemical, had created an “unsafe” environment due to the extreme foul smell of rotten chicken, combined with the harsh hair relaxer chemicals…Her professor said we still need to come back tomorrow, Wednesday, to weigh the other items…i.e the metal, plastic, etc… So we will be there tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. to do that…

My thoughts are… I am so THANKFUL that Shantel’s chemistry  lab professor allowed her to do this BIOLOGY experiment in her lab… My question is why didn’t the BIOLOGY instructor step up and invite Shantel to do this experiment in her BIOLOGY lab…????

Can you just imagine what this experiment would have been like had we performed it in our home… knowing how picky I am… ????

Stay Tuned!

      I’m trying to “think I can…” Frissy but it gets REEEEEL hard sometimes… I have been told by other’s that the reason I was “chosen” to be involved in all this is because “I can handle it…” I can only hope I can keep it all up for the long run… And do who ever thought I could handle all this PROUD…I think I can, I think I can… XoXo MORE!!!

    Oh my! Another twist to the experiment. You would think the biology professor would know the potential danger.

    Well one thing there is never a dull moment. Great post! Thanks for sharing
