Science Fun at Group Home 3

Trevor and Helen tried an emulsion experiment last month. They added oil, water, food coloring, and dish soap in their jars. They observed that the detergent grabs onto both types of molecules causing oil droplets to be suspended in the water. Trevor wanted to see what happened when he shook up his jar, mixing the liquids all together. They result was that the detergent molecules adhere the water and oil together forming an emulsion. We also added food coloring for more colour and an added element to our experiment.

Staff work with the individuals to plan activities that match their interests. This is just one example of a learning activity based on observation and discussion with individuals.
