Program STEM

This week let's take a closer look at color chromatography and then your challenge will be to use this process from chemistry to create your own work of art. Check out this video to get started!

When you finish we'd love to see what you've created. Use this link to submit a photo.

Materials List

Permanent Markers
Isopropyl alcohol (a concentration of 90% or higher is recommended)
dropper bottle, medicine dropper, or a straw
plastic cups
Rubber bands
White fabric like a cotton t-shirt or bandana (remember to get adult permission)

It is recommended to do this project in a well-ventilated area. We did it outside.
