Science fair kickoff was today at the elementary school. We arranged to have "Mad Science" come in and give an hour long assembly to get the kids excited for the upcoming Science Fair. The presenter is very enthusiastic and explains the difference between magic and science. My favorite experiment he does (besides playing with dry ice), is getting a hard boiled egg inside a flask. He heats up the air molecules inside, places the egg on top, the air molecules cool quickly and the warmer air outside pushes the egg inside. It's great!!
