- What sounds interesting about this project?
I have heard about caffeine being present in everyday drinks like coffee and tea. I think that being able to try extracting caffeine from drinks would be very interesting as I would be able to see pure caffeine which is a first for me. With some research I found out that this is how pure caffeine looks like:

- What do you think you can learn from this project?
I can learn about the different amount of caffeine in the different drinks we consume every day. I can also learn to identify the different artificial colours. I would also like to take the chance to understand the side effects of consuming caffeine. I have heard stories of pure caffeine increasing your heart rate at a shocking rate.
- Any immediate questions regarding the project?
