- — Varshini Rajkumar (@SreeVarshiniR)Wed, Jan 03 2018 17:40:02Love this! My favourite is the Iodine Clock because it's interesting to see them understand how empirical evidence correlates to abstract orders of reactions. #myfavepractical #ASEconf #edchat what's your fave?? https://twitter.com/RSC_EiC/status/948590091265507333 …

- — Katy Alder (@drkalder)Wed, Jan 03 2018 22:16:02@RSC_EiC V simple but I like making indicators. We often go out and collect random plants/flowers, then discuss which make good indicators and why.
- — Richard Webb (@Fasgadh)Thu, Jan 04 2018 09:52:31@RSC_EiC Using Briggs -Rauscher reaction to investigate antioxidants in foods - different teas, effect of freezing, cooking etc. A Higher investigation favourite. Left over chemicals can be used as a demo to inspire younger classes.
- — ZigZag Science (@ZigZagScience)Thu, Jan 04 2018 09:37:10@RSC_EiC For us its calcium carbide/ice. The fact you can use ice to start a reaction blows students' minds, and is a great chance to stretch A Level students by mentioning alkynes (an interesting but accessible extension).

Faces of the ASE annual conference
Throughout the conference we're talking to some of the delegates who've made the trip to Liverpool for the 2018 Association for Science Education annual conference. We're asking them 'What's your favourite class practical, and why?'
