Our reading selection this month, How to Fossilize Your Hamster by Mick O’Hare, is a hands-on guide to learning about science. It’s fun to read, but more fun to work through the experiments yourself.
We made a bomb with baking soda and vinegar, by the way, use a small ziplock bag, the large ones are too big. We did the Diet Coke and Mentos experiments. We also made slime from corn starch and water.
The publisher has some videos online, too. Some were created by New Scientist and others were submitted by readers.
Any Skepchick readers working on experiments from the book? If you’ve got any stories or videos, send them in to me!
