The Milk Lab...a guest post...

My oldest Kid Scientist, Connar, came home from school the other day excited to share "The Milk Lab".  Today's demonstration is his guest post...

Ages: This is best for 5 year olds through 13 year olds

Materials:  whole milk, food coloring, dish soap, small dish

  • Pour a small amount of milk into the dish
  •  Put four different drops of food coloring in a square around the edges of the dish

  • Put one drop of dish soap into the center of the square.  Watch carefully because this is where the reaction starts.
  •  I know why this happened: The dish soap, because it eats away grease, broke up the fat in the milk to make this reaction happen.

I works even better with a plate or shallow dish.
