Colour Combination

This week room 12 did a experiment using a color disc. Our focus was to try combined the three primary colors. The circle had to be 10 cm long,We used a string and it was used to spin the disc the colors we used were red, blue and green.  When I spun the color blue and green the color I saw when the disc was spinning at a maximum speed was turquoise. The experiment went well and I managed to see the different colors we would make with the 3 primary colors.
