Our in-class experiment was to create crystals with borax, below are the steps we used. First, heat up 200 ml of water to 100 degrees Celsius (heat all liquids to the same temperature).

Take the other end of pipe cleaner and wrap it around another stick. Then, Place the pipe cleaner inside the borax water and leave it till next class(about 48 Hours). Once they sat till next class, then we measured the largest crystals on the three different pipe cleaner and we found that the one that was in the cooler, had significantly smaller crystals vs the one in the incubator. The one in the
