Rainbow Science Experiment

This fun project gives a fun WOW effect to help get young kids excited about science. But its important to help them understand what happended so they will be ready to ask intilligent questions and keep being curious. Basically. in this Rainbow Science Experiment, when you add warm water to the Skittles, the sugar and food coloring start to dissolve. As the colors dissolve they start to move to areas with lower sugar concentration. Since all the colors dissolve at the same pace it makes pretty lines towards the center.

Put skittles on a white plate or platter in the largest circle possible around the plate, but still making sure they are touching with no gaps between skittles. There are two basic choices:

  • form a pattern – purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red REPEAT. This is a great way to help young learners practice forming patterns!
  • color block – make a large section all blue then make another large section green, etc. until you’ve used all the colors to form a cricle.
