To hone their experimental skills and become more familiar with scientific equipment, seventh graders at Seaford Middle School were recently immersed in a liquid rainbows lab.
The young scientists worked in pairs, measuring precise amounts of red, yellow and blue liquids. They had to observe the changes as the liquids were mixed together.
Science teacher Roseann Zeblisky said that the liquid volume lab was an introductory experiment to give students a refresher on the scientific method. It also allowed them to become familiar with the equipment they will use throughout the year, such as graduated cylinders and test tubes.
Students learned the importance of following instructions step by step and how to draw conclusions from their observations.
