Doppler 9&10 STEM: Make Snow Indoors
Teachers & Parents:
Does your kid have a science question?
Have them send us a video with a weather question to firstname.lastname@example.org!
As northern Michiganders, we love the snow…. but sometimes we don’t like the cold meshing with the snow. If this is you, then I have an experiment for you and the kids! Let’s make snow indoors! You most likely have the ingredients at home, so you won’t need to break the bank. It also will be cool to the touch as well due to an Endothermic Reaction. An Endothermic reaction is when an object is cooler than its surrounding environment. This allows for heat to move toward the object. In this case, our snow is trying to gain back heat because it is so cool!
- Baking Soda
- Shaving Cream
- Large Bowl
- Glitter (White or Grey)
- Start with pouring 3 cups of Baking Soda into a large bowl
- Pour 1/2 can of shaving cream into the large bowl
- Mix the shaving cream and Baking soda with a spoon
- OPTIONAL: Add glitter to add some shimmer and sparkle to the Snow
- Your final product should be fluffy and cool!
- Add Baking soda and Shaving cream in different amounts to change the consistency or touch of the snow.
If your kiddos try this experiment, send us photos of you and your experiment and you might get to see it during weather on The Four on Tuesdays and Thursdays!
Make sure you tune in every Tuesday for a New 9&10 STEM. Send us an email at email@example.com or find us on Facebook and at Doppler 9&10 Weather Team if you have a weather question or want something in science explained! It does not have to be weather-related! Anything Science or math-based we’ve got you! You can always get the latest forecast on 9and10news.com/weather as well as interact with us on social media!
