Important: This activity must be undertaken with an adult at home or supervising.


Have a boring old white t-shirt that could do with a facelift? Want to add a bit of razzle-dazzle to your wardrobe? Science to the rescue!

With a few permanent markers and methylated spirits, you can use chemistry to create some funky t-shirt designs.

The CSIRO Double Helix website has all the instructions you need to complete this activity.

Thank you to Mrs Anne Kitchener, HVGS Science Teacher, for this staycation activity.
