Wordless Wednesday: The Magic of Colour!

Taking part in Wordless Wednesday at My Little Drummer Boys.  

As we did last school holidays, a couple of weeks ago we participated in the CSIRO's school holiday science programme. This time it was all about doing science experiments with colour. Here are some shots taken during that session.

Clockwise from top left: food colouring dropped in full-fat milk,
measuring acidity with cabbage juice,

dropping coloured hot water into cold water to make volcano effect,

making marble paintings with oil paint and water,

food colouring dropped in skim milk

  4. This one booked up for the first session that occurred the weekend before, but we were able to get in on the second session without much problem. One of the joys of living in a smaller community I guess!

  6. Repeating my reply above, but...the experiment goes like this: 1) Take a plate of full fat milk and drop different drops of food colouring
    in it and then drop some washing up liquid in it and watch the colours
    move around. 2) Do the same with skim milk and observe the difference.

  8. We enjoyed the previous session more than this one, but the kids really get a kick out of anything to do with science so they want to go back again next school holidays.
