A Colorful Science Experiment for Kiddos

Wee Warhols is taking a new approach to get our little ones into art and science. Owner and lead instructor Amber Scardino dropped by to show and tell. Amber is a co-author of a book called Steam Kids that gives various fun project ideas that teach children more about science, math, engineering and more. The project we tried today is called “Rainbow Reaction.” You’ll need a long container to keep the mess to one area. Take a piece of cardboard, and attach six cups using zip ties. These cups will be filled with baking soda. You’ll have six more cups lined up in the container, filled with vinegar. Add a bit of soap to each of the vinegar cups, and add food coloring for that rainbow effect. Mix the vinegar cups well. The cups foamed up, and the experiment stayed true to it’s name. Wee Warhols will have spots available for a winter workshop, and is located at 606 Terrell Hill in Austin. Check them out online at weewarhols.com.
