An Indoor Science Snowstorm

An Indoor Science Snowstorm

Budding scientists at Branch Brook Elementary School created a snowstorm in a jar during a science experiment with their buddies on Feb. 15.

Using baby oil, warm water, glitter and Alka-Seltzer, the students predicted whether or not oil and water would mix if they added pressure to their jars. Third-graders in Annamarie Polito’s class paired up with their kindergarten buddies in Sharon Weissman’s class to predict their results and record their observations.
