Science and magic can easily be confused

Acitivities, Outreach

During playscheme:

Me: If you want, you can mix the colors together in the wells.

4 year old: I’m doing magic!

Staff: It’s science, not magic.

Youngsters still believe science is magic.

I told the children I grow white blood cells in the tissue culture plates and I add ‘food’ to the wells using a pipette. The children then had a go at pipetting coloured liquids into the tissue culture plates.
