Huron High School’s chemistry students raised $528.00 for Alpha House in Ann Arbor during their annual silver bottle lab last month. Students from the chemistry classes of Peter Elias, Andrew Collins, and Barb Schenk silver-coated the inside of glass bottles in a series of chemical reactions involving silver nitrate, ammonia, potassium hydroxide, and glucose—the same process used to make a mirror.
Students who choose to participate in this annual charity pay $5, with the chemistry department paying for students who can’t afford it. Money is reserved for the next order of silver nitrate—which is usually every three years—and the rest is donated to a local charity.
