1. milk
2. food colouring
3. plate
4. washing up liquid
5. syringe

what we did (written by dylan)

Pour some milk on to a plate. Put a few drops of food colouring in the middle of the plate. Put some washing liquid in the syringe, then drop some washing up liquid into the middle all of the food colouring and watch it go. The name of this process is called Diffusion!

Science Explanation (written by dad)
The washing up liquid acts as a degreaser separating the fat molecules in the Milk. Because the Milk has a low surface tension the fat molecules can easily be split. As the molecules are split it causes a motion which creates the swirling of the colours.

Yesterday we made CD cars. It was so cool. I wish the whole town could make them, so we can all have a race.

I was happy and relieved when the cars worked.

To make the cars we used wood, drill, nails, elastic bands, bolts and wing nuts.

First we cut the wood to size 25cm. We used some square blocks with nails for the middle parts.

Then we drilled some big holes to put a screw bar through.

Next we screwed the nuts on to hold the CD in place.

Then we added a nail to hold the elastic band on.

We used the elastic band to make the car go.
