Another science fair idea: Make rainbow roses by splitting the stems into strands and placing each one in food coloring. The roses draw the food coloring into the petals. Im gonna try this just for kicks lol
I’m not a lover of ants. In fact I despise them. But after reading about this I thought wow – rainbow ants science experiment with kids! Only certain types of ants have transparent stomachs. So take that into consideration when doing this experiment. I also read the person taking the images used some paraffin in the water drops – so it wold hold the droplet shape (not sure how accurate that is). How about this idea for the kids school science fair?
TEABAG ROCKET: Amaze your kids! How it works: “Everyone knows that hot air rises and this experiment demonstrates that idea as well as the principles of convection currents. As the tea bag burns, hot air is being created, as well as a thermal, or convection current, under the bag. When the tea bag burns down into a small enough ball of ashes, the convection current causes it shoot up in the air.”
