SCHOOL may still be out for summer for some of you, but there are still loads of fun science experiments you can carry out in the comfort of your own home!
Our friends at the Science Museum in London have come up with another brilliant bit of ‘kitchen science’ for you to try out. Make sure you ask a grown-up for help, though!
In this colourful experiment, you will explore the different properties of materials and see what happens when different materials are mixed together.
Pour the milk into your tray.
Add a few drops of food colouring in a circle near the middle of the tray, so that it sits on top of the milk. You can use a pipette for this if you have one. Dip a cotton bud in washing-up liquid and then dip it in the centre of the milk. But careful not to stir, just touch the milk with the cotton bud. Watch the colours swirl!
Extra step: Why not turn your experiment into a piece of art? Gently lay a sheet of plain white paper on the surface and make a print of your colourful swirls.
