Reward student achievement or creativity with the “silver mirror award,” a beautiful silver-mirrored flask that you create in the lab by the reduction of silver ions with dextrose. Simply combine four solutions in a flask, swirl, and voilá—a thin, highly reflective silver coating plates out on the inside of the flask. The process “mirrors” the way silver mirrors are actually produced.
