Year 4 Mummify a Tomato!

It is hard to get hold of a body to mummify, so Year 4 practised their skills as embalmers instead. They scooped out the insides of a tomato, used anti-bacterial handwash to get rid of the bacteria, weighed it and covered it with natron salts (table salt and Bicarbonate of Soda).  Instead of the 70 days that it normally takes to embalm a body they will check their results in two weeks.  Fingers crossed!
