Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math: All of these areas are incorporated into daily learning here at The Discovery Center. Above is the "exploding colors" experiment. We used milk, food coloring, and liquid dish detergent. We poured milk in the plate, added a few drops of food coloring, and watched the colors sit there. Then we added a drop of dish soap (on the end of the q-tip) and, bam! the colors flew around the plate! Why did this happen? The dish soap breaks the surface tension, allowing the colors to "explode" around the plate. Try this at home, it's easy and fun!!
