KENTUCKY (01/08/2018)  Does your spoon and fork scream when you pick them up? Our “science guy” Jason Lindsey and a kid scientist show us a mega spoon and fork that does just that, when placed on a block of super cold ice. 

SCREAMING SPOON AND FORK

INGREDIENTS

  • Dry Ice 
  • Spoon
  • Fork
  • Thermal Gloves
  • Pipe Cleaner

INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1: Using the thermal gloves, place a large piece of dry ice on a flat surface.

STEP 2: Holding the handle of the spoon, place the back of the spoon against the dry ice, and observe. Provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.

STEP 3: Holding the handle of the fork, place the back of the fork against the dry ice, and observe. Provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.

STEP 4: Using the illustration of a sound wave to the right, under “science background,” develop a model of a sound wave with the pipe cleaner. Identify the different parts of the wave.

SCIENCE SAFETY

PLEASE follow these safety precautions when doing any science experiment.

ALWAYS have an adult present.

ALWAYS wear the correct safety gear while doing any experiment.

NEVER eat or drink anything while doing any experiment.

REMEMBER experiments may require marbles, small balls, balloons, and other small parts. Those objects could become a CHOKING HAZARD. Adults are to perform those experiments using these objects. Any child can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Keep uninflated or broken balloons away from children.
