Rainbow Skittles Color Science Experiment
In this fun and easy science experiment, we’re going to explore and investigate colors by making a beautiful rainbow with Skittles.
- Warm water
- Arrange the Skittles in a circle around the edge of the plate.
- Gently pour the warm water into the center of the plate until if fills up around the Skittles.
- Watch as the beautiful and colorful rainbow grows.
How it Works:
The Skittle candies are coated with sugar and food coloring. The water dissolves the sugar and releases the food coloring which then slowly diffuses through the water.
Make This A Science Project:
Try other colorful candies. Try different temperatures of water. Try vinegar. Try adding salt to the water.
