Today we have record cold temperatures. The temperature is â€“12 degrees, and not going up. While we sometimes get temperatures that cold during the night it is unusual to see it in the day time. So I figured we should take advantage of the weather and do some cold weather science. So I had my son bundle up and head outside. First we took a cup of boiling water and threw it in the air. The water droplets were supposed to turn to snow, and sure enough it worked. Not all the water turned to snow, but enough did that it looked really cool.
Then we got out bubble solution and blew bubbles. The bubbles froze before they hit the ground and became ice bubbles. Then they kind of collapsed on themselves and turned into shards of ice. Five minutes was about long enough to finish our experiments, and about as long as we wanted to be out there.
