Michelle then facilitated an experiment in the Senior Room. The experiment involved creating a coating for a tablet and then testing its durability. Michelle discussed the importance of coating tablets, the purpose of doing so and how it affects the release of important medicine into the human body through the digestive system. Designing the coating for a tablet involves science, technology, engineering and math to formulate the ingredients to make the coating, design it, test it and then produce it in bulk amounts.
All at Cloonlyon thoroughly enjoyed having Michelle visit us today. We would like to thank her for a wonderful morning and hope to see her again soon for some more amazing experiments. Happy Science Week!
