hooked science 300KENTUCKY (8/16/14) — You typically put hair gel in your hair, but you are not going to believe what else you can do with hair gel.

Our “Science Guy” Jason Lindsey and a kid scientist shows us how hair gel and a few other ingredients from around the house can teach us a little about the science behind color.

INGREDIENTS

  • Clear Hair Gel

  • Food Coloring

  • 4 Squeeze Bottles

  • 5 Hefty Slider Sandwich Bags

INSTRUCTIONS

  • STEP 1: Fill each of the squeeze bottles half of the way with clear hair gel.

  • STEP 2: Using the food coloring, add a different color to each squeeze bottle. Fill the rest of the squeeze bottles with clear hair gel, screw on the tops, and vigorously shake each bottle.

  • STEP 3: Squeeze two different colors into a Hefty Slider Sandwich Bag without mixing. Close the Hefty Slider Sandwich Bag, mix, and observe.

  • STEP 4: Hold the Hefty Slider Sandwich Bag up to the light and observe.

EXPLANATION

When two primary colors are mixed together, you create a secondary color. Mixing blue and red creates purple, mixing red and yellow creates orange, and mixing yellow and blue creates green. Since the Hefty Slider Sandwich Bag and contents are translucent, light easily shines through the bag.
