Week 3 Colourful Skittles

Colourful skittles is one of Miss Radbourne's favourite investigations because it looks fantastic and it uses sweets! Can you explain the science behind what is happening. What are you observing? Describe everything you see from start to finish.

Stretch your thinking by suggesting other sweets that may work. What might happen if you used a different liquid such as milk or lemonade? Miss Radbourne plans to have a go at this investigation using mini-eggs this weekend as it is Easter. Do you think it will work?

Week 2 challenge from Professor Custard!
