Observing Skittles in Science Club!

In Science club today, the children made patterns on a plate with skittles and poured some water over their patterns. The observed the beautiful colour patterns that appeared as the skittles started to dissolve in the water. As the children watched the colours appear in the water, they noticed that the different colours from the skittles did not mix. This happened because each food colour has the same amount of sugar that dissolved from each skittle. Look at the beautiful patterns that were created!
