Color my World with Plant Science

The Maywood Ag Education Department has been busy already this winter.  Students in the animal science class are wrapping up their study on genetics, focusing on dominant and recessive traits in cattle, genetic defects in various species, and understanding the basics of Expected Progeny Differences (EPD’s) in cattle.   

The plant science class has spent the beginning of this semester studying floral design.  The foundation of floral design is being able to use colors which complement each other.  The best way to learn color theory is by studying a color wheel. A color wheel shows relationships between primary colors, secondary colors, tertiary colors etc. To see these relationships first hand, students made their own color wheels using frosting and food coloring. By combining small amounts of primary colors, students were able to create secondary and tertiary colors as well.

This sugary activity culminated on a sweet note: students frosted sugar cookies with the 12 colors of their wheels and . . . well, let’s just say that in the end, there was more than one cookie monster in the room. "Me eat cookie! Om nom nom nom!”
