This week has been STEM week!  The children took part in a colour change experiment. We used some red cabbage that had been blended with water, poured it into clear cups and added various household items to see if the colour changed. We talked about acids and alkalis which would have a different effect on the cabbage water. We found that acids (lemon juice and vinegar) would turn it pink, and alkalis (bicarbonate of soda and washing powder) will turn it blue & green. We had lots of fun watching the colours change!
