The Global Experiment 2014
Take part in the Global Experiment 2014 and help answer the question: What are the best conditions for growing crystals?
The Royal Society of Chemistry, UK, has launched a Global Experiment. The experiment asks students around the world to take part by growing crystals and posting their data online to find the best conditions.
The experiment is aimed at 9-14 year old students worldwide. You can take part at home or in school as it uses non-specialised equipment and easily available materials.

The Global Experiments is part of the International Year of Crystallography 2014 (IYCr2014), which commemorates the centennial of X-ray diffraction and celebrates the important role of crystallography in the modern world. IYCr2014 is organised by the International Union of Crystallography, and supported by UNESCO.
