"Diaper Wipe" Diffusion

Grade Level: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, K, Special Education

This project demonstrates the physical process of osmosis. Water-based markers are diluted by filtering water through an ordinary wet wipe. The flow of the color is slowed and channeled by the presence of oil and alchohol in the wipe, creating random and interesting tie-dye-type patterns. Educational...and really fun to watch!
