It’s non-toxic and safe to drink, if you’re up for drinking straight sugar water, that is!

STEAM activities should be fun, and every now and then, it’s fun to throw things like regular NGSS standards required activities and traditional curriculum out the window and just have fun with science!

We’ve done just that with this Fortnite inspured slurp drink water density experiment.

What is Density in Science?

You may have tried a salt water density experiment, but this time, try a sugar density experiment with this Fortnite slurp drink water density experiment! #stemactivities #fortnite #steamactivity #stemed #science #kidsactivities

Density is a measure of mass per unit of volume. You can find the average density of an object by dividing total mass by total volume.

The denser the object, the less volume it will have compared with an object of equal mass that has less density.

Density isn’t visible and can be hard for kids to understand. That’s why the classic sugar density tower and liquid density experiments are so popular, because it’s an easy way to visually represent the varying densities of liquids.

You can explore density with a rainbow density tower, hot and cold water density experiment, and with a salt water density experiment.

In this case, we will be exploring density with sugar.

Water Density Science Explained

In this water density experiment, we will be using food coloring density along with sugar to complete the Fortnite science project.

Adding sugar to water makes it more dense. The more sugar you add, the greater the density of the liquid.

This works perfectly to make the contrasting colors in the Fortnite slurp drink.

How to Make a Slurp Drink Density Column

You may have tried a salt water density experiment, but this time, try a sugar density experiment with this Fortnite slurp drink water density experiment! #stemactivities #fortnite #steamactivity #stemed #science #kidsactivities

Pour one cup of water into a small pot. Heat until boiling.

Once the water boils, add 3 tablespoons of sugar and stir until dissolved. Don’t heat the water too long or the water will turn to candy. Just let the sugar heat long enough to dissolve.

Add a few drops of green food coloring to the hot water. Let the water cool.

Once cool, pour the water into the jar.

Place a few drops of blue food coloring into a second cup of water and stir.

Carefully pour the blue water into the jar with the green water. Try not to mix the colors much, because even though the sugar water is denser, it will mix with the blue water if you’re not careful.

Wait for the two layers to settle and put on the lid.

The slurp drink water density experiment is complete!

The extra density of the sugar in the green layer helps keep the layers separated, but if the jar gets bumped, the colors will mix, so be careful!

Slurp Drink Water Density Experiment Variations

You may have tried a salt water density experiment, but this time, try a sugar density experiment with this Fortnite slurp drink water density experiment! #stemactivities #fortnite #steamactivity #stemed #science #kidsactivities

If you want to use this activity as a Fortnite science fair project, you’ll need to include variables and a hypothesis.

First, guess what will happen to the liquids once sugar is added.

  • Will they combine?
  • Will they stay separated?
  • What happens if the sugar is added when the water is hot?
  • What if it is added when the water is cold?
  • What happens when you add even more sugar?

Once you have your hypothesis, then test each variable and record the results. The version of the sugar density tower that looks most like the Fortnite slurp drink is the winner!
