Groovy Lava Lamps

February 28, 2014

On February 12th, the Hedgehogs had a Scientist Day filled with lots of science projects. One of the most exciting and psychedelic projects was making lava lamps.  By adding colored water and vegetable oil, the scholars learned that oils and water do not mix and will separate in the bottle. When you shake it up, the oils travels through the water in blobs, like a lava lamp!
