Rainbow jelly

Today at math's we have been given a jelly challenge. We have to make a rainbow striped jelly. Rainbow striped jelly is jelly in a cup with five different colored stripes.

First we had to measure how much jelly we could fit in the cup by using water we got 250mL while others got 285mL which was wrong. Then we had to figure out how much water we could fit into each stripe we got 50mL same with all the other people doing the experiment.

After that we had to figure out how many jelly crystals we would need. Me and Nea first came up with 8.5 but then we noticed that that was wrong then we tested out one and a half tbsp on our experiment cup and that worked the best so now we do that amount.

Now we are on our fourth colour on our experiment cup and we have

another cup which is, well, our best cup the stripes look like stripes unlike the other one but the other one is far more interesting and creative though. Some of the colours that we added sunk and some of the colours rose some colours blended a little bit but I like both of the jelly's. Our next colour in our experiment cup is going to be purple while on our good cup it will also be purple. We made two so everybody in the class can have some jelly.

A thing I have learnt is that in jelly there is a substance called gelotine in jelly which helps the jelly set. And while it may sound easy it is surly isn't!
