Room 15 2nd Class Skittle Rainbow Experiment

November 15, 2020

Ms Mooney’s 2nd class experimented with skittles as part of Science Week. Each pod arranged the skittles in a single row coloured pattern around the edge of the plate. Teacher poured enough warm water to cover all the skittles and the plate itself. Skittles are particularly good for this experiment because they are colourful and dissolve even faster than other sweets. When you pour water over the skittles the coloured coating dissolves spreading through the water. The colour and sugar dissolve into the water and then diffuse through the water, making it the colour of the skittle.

Have a look at all the colours of the rainbow they made.
