It is recommended  that you look at the experiment supply list before the Zoom meeting and compile the supplies your Color Scientist will need to do their investigation.  Examples will be shown in class but your child will be encouraged to be flexible and do the experiment with the supplies you have in your home. 

The only supplies that will be used in class are their Scientific Journal (which they will make and decorate) and their crayons.
