Our class loved Science Week!
Any type of chemical reaction is fun to watch and makes for great hands-on learning! This magic milk science experiment is the perfect experiment as you already have all the items for it in your kitchen!
We used milk, food colouring and washing up liquid.
We covered the bottom of paper plates with milk, then add drops of different food colouring colours and then dipped cotton buds into the plate.
Milk is made up of minerals, proteins, and fats. Proteins and fats are susceptible to changes. When the dish soap is added to the milk, those molecules run around and try to attach to the fat molecules in the milk.
You wouldn’t see this without the food coloring! The food coloring looks like fireworks because it’s getting bumped around!
