|Oil and Water Tubes: An Illustration of Ocean Properties|
Ocean FEST is a program of hands-on, ocean-themed science activities for students in grades 3-6 and/or their families. Our goals are to: (1) educate participants about ocean and earth science issues that are relevant to their communities; and (2) inspire students--especially those from underrepresented groups--to pursue careers in the ocean and earth sciences. This activity, which involves pouring oil and water into a tube and then adding splash dye tablets, can be used to discuss a variety of important science concepts that are relevant to the environment.
