Experiment Video


It’s always happy to play with water and color. So I am not going to stop you, go ahead and try the same in your own way of imagination.
A good scientist always does things differently from others. So, use your magic wand and wake up the scientist in you.
I have attached a downloadable file to help with your experiment.
Magic of mixing colors – Experiment (Free Download)


  • Fine, actually colors will not merge together at all!
  • Take for example television screens, all of the light from each part of the mixture is still there. But, our eyes are not able to see the different parts of the mixed light, so we would only see a single color.
  • The integration happens in our eyes. Keep in mind, color is our perception towards the subject or things out there in the world.

Scientific Learning

A color is caused by differing qualities of light being reflected or emitted by an object. Through lights only we can see color. When light is bright colors bounced off the object and others are absorbed by it. Our eyes only see the colors that are bounced off or reflected.

Primary Colors: Red, yellow and blue
The primary colors are those which cannot be created by mixing other colors in a given color space. Set of colors from which all other colors are derived.

Secondary Colors: Green, orange and purple
These are the colors formed by mixing the primary colors. A color produced by mixing two additive primary colors in equal proportions.

Tertiary Colors: Yellow-orange, red-orange, red-purple, blue-purple, blue-green & yellow-green
These are the colors formed by mixing a primary and a secondary color. That’s why the hue is a two-word name, such as blue-green, red-violet, and yellow-orange.Tertiary colors are combinations of primary and secondary colors. There are six tertiary colors; red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet, and red-violet.

I am scientist

I am scientist is a result of small effort to make huge impact on children. To stimulate the curiosity of young scientist towards science. Each idea will start with a experiment followed by reasoning the result , scientific learning, vocabulary (recap the big words used), useful reference website and books, along with free downloadable worksheets.
