Chemistry is SOOOO cool!!!!

This is a pic of one of our homeschool chemistry projects. We layered corn syrup, vegetable oil, water, and alcohol and tinted each layer a different color. Due to the density of the different "ingredients" - the layers separated. It was SO neat! After this, we dropped different objects into the glass and saw which layer the object would sink to. We discussed viscosity and properties. Next, we're going to be studying polymers - i./e. making "slime".
Yea - nothing's blown up YET!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Hug your favorite scientist!!
