Goal: Scouts will understand basic color theory with primary and secondary colors, and the role of color in the manufacturing of plastic. Students will apply color theory when they add color in upcoming polymer activities.
Supplies: color paddles*, color wheel*, paint, paint brushes, construction paper, scissors, glue(*These items are in the Color Your World with Polymer Science kit found at the scout store.)
Make color equations with paint or construction paper. Use a color wheel to help you with your choices. Red + Yellow = ?; Blue + Yellow = ?; Red + Blue = ?
Outcome: Students will apply color theory when they add color in upcoming polymer activities. Students will understand how color is added to plastics to make vibrant colors.
