Science Wizards

I have no idea why every time I try to upload a photoshop image the colors get distorted. If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know.

I've been working at the UConn Chemistry Outreach center since Fall '07. During the month of May we send a team out to different middle schools in the surrounding area to do demonstrations and activities to get kids interested in science. Some of these activities include making water filters and a variety of liquid nitrogen/dry ice things, among other things.

My job was to stay back at the lab and clean their supplies and restock and get them ready for the next day.
The other thing I did was design t-shirts for the team, which you see here. I sketched in pencil, then sharpie, then scanned it in and plopped colors in in Adobe PS, then my coworkers added words (it was around finals and I didn't have very much time). Later I found out that I couldn't do multiple colors, but the company made it work. What do you think?
