Creativity Day: Science meets Art

A group of students from Year 4, 7 and 8 had a wonderful day doing some Science-Art. They boiled up some red cabbage and extracted the purple indicator from it. After that, they showed other students how to prepare the (rather smelly) purple sheets. The students “painted” their sheets using various very dilute acid and alkali solutions. Just look at the fun they had and the beautiful results they obtained. We are looking forward to doing more projects with the students in the future! 1 boiling, extraction 2. Preparing sheets 4.
