Which is the best Strawberry Orange Juice? The choice is yours!

Fifth grade students participated in a product research survey during science class.  Students were challenged to develop the best color for a new strawberry orange juice for a fictional juice company.  Teams of students used food coloring  and water to develop 3 different formulas for colors.  Students in each class voted on their favorite color from each team.  The 6 class winners were then voted on by sixth graders and various other individuals.  The 5 overall winners -one winner from each class – were then voted on by 6th graders during lunch. The overall winning formula was made by placing only 1 drop of red food coloring in each 8 ounces of water.  Students then had to complete a Research Product Data sheet and construct a bar graph depicting voting results.  Students learned about the purpose and importance of product research and chemical engineers in the Engineering Design Process through this challenge.
