Seniors in Chemistry II got to take one last (mini) field trip before graduation to Farm Life Creamery in Ethan, where they learned how store bought milk, cheese, and ice cream are made! To finish the year, they are learning about one of the last organic functional groups, the carboxylic acids. Carboxylic acids include fatty acids, which are the building blocks of fats in our bodies. Did you know that cow's milk consists of approximately 60-70% saturated fatty acids? Next week, their last lab will involve making soap from the carboxylic salts of carboxylic acids.
