During this summer’s second installment of ScienceWOW Wednesday, Youth Services Coordinator Kristine Spyker taught a handful of children the meaning of the word density by conducting several experiments.

By using water, vegetable oil and food coloring, Spyker showed that even though oil is the heavier substance, it rises when poured into water because water has a greater density causing it to sink.
