We are talking all about colors on this edition of Science Sunday, and this is an activity we encourage you to try along with us at home. The supplies you will need are: a blue-colored pencil, a red-colored pencil, red and blue filter paper, and a piece of regular printer paper. Now that you have all of the items you need- it is time to get creative! The very first step is to take both of those colored pencils and start drawing, draw whatever you would like- be as creative as you want. Once you have finished your creation- watch the full Science Sunday segment below to learn what to do next- the results may surprise you.
This activity is brought to us by a group of our teen ambassadors from our Teen Innovation Program this summer.
There is so much more Science Sunday to explore. Check out the full gallery of segments on our blog: https://ctsciencecenter.org/blog_categories/science-sunday/.
