Ankara Scientist !

We all love ANKARA. We love the repeated patterns that sometimes tells a story.

What can you see in these patterns?
Some rubbish floats and some rubbish sinks.
Let us find out what happens to our waterways when we throw our rubbish into gutters, streams and rivers.

You will need:

Waste plastic bottles. 


Various materials : oil, sand, rice, beans, bits of plastic etc.

1. Fill your bottles with water.

2. In each bottle put a different material. Shake it up !

3. What floats? What sinks? What hangs around in the water?

4. Make drawings of your results.

5. Make a repeat pattern of your experiment results.
6. Draw a pattern in the background.
7. Colour it in: You are an Ankara Scientist !
