Norwood-Fontbonne Academy added 14 new photos to the album: Identifying Vitamin C Content.

Are you getting enough Vitamin C in your orange juice? During this morning’s lab studies, 7th graders used scientific methods to determine Vitamin C levels in various types of OJ. Using a cornstarch solution, iodine, the OJ trials, and mathematics equations, they identified the OJ with the greatest level of C content.
