Science in Action

In Science, year 6 students are developing an understanding of concepts such as evaporation, absorption, melting and dissolving.  This engaging science experiment was called Paper Chromatography.  Students tested different inks to see what they were made up of.  They observed the solvent (water) slowly travelling up the paper. The different components of the ink mixtures travelled at different rates and the mixtures separated into different colours. Students were amazed by their results!
