Sarah’s Science Experiments with Dry Ice

“Discover the Fascinating World of Science with Sarah Spivey”

Are you ready to embark on a journey through the exciting world of science? Join Meteorologist Sarah Spivey every Wednesday on GMSA@9 as she conducts live demonstrations and explains the science behind them. This partnership with the San Antonio Zoo is sure to spark your curiosity and inspire a love for learning.

Intrigued? Here’s what you’ll need for the experiments:

* Dry ice (remember to handle it with gloves)

* DRY ICE BIG BUBBLE: large bowl, dish soap/water mixture, water, shoe lace or strip of cloth

* EXTINGUISHING CANDLE: Tea light, match, Tupperware or small bowl

* DRY ICE “INSTRUMENT”: cups/containers of different sizes/shapes, water, soap


Ready to get started? Here are the steps for each experiment:


1. Fill a large bowl with water and drop a little dry ice in it.

2. Dip a shoe lace or strip of cloth in a soapy solution and drag it across the bowl, sealing the bowl with soapy water. You should see a big bubble form with vapor from the dry ice.
