Katie and I brought the science of Earth Day to the studios of NBC Channel 12 and Arizona Midday, with Earth Day: Under Pressure! Here we take a look at the Earth's atmosphere, and how we can interact with it. Learn how to crush cans not with your hands, but with air! Also, make water rise with candles, a jar, and the power of air pressure!

Katie and I are becoming regulars on Channel 12, bringing science experiments to the studio of Arizona Midday! Here, you can watch us demonstrate our colorful chemistry for Valentine's Day! You'll see pH indicators, and dazzling instant color changing flowers, all with the help of acids, bases, and chemistry!

Last night, my daughter and I brought color changing chemistry to the kids of our downtown public library, in the form of acids, bases, and indicators! As we went through our demo, we began experimenting with color changing reactions. This, a simple experiment of baking soda, red cabbage indicator, and vinegar, erupted into a color changing foamy mess! But even cooler, it settled down into a colorful density column of acids and bases!

We started with conversations on pH, and ended up talking about phases of matter, and what density means with different structures (and movement) of molecules!

It's amazing what science can achieve when it comes to dazzling and inspiring kids (and adults) to learn, experiment, and discover more about the world around them!

Here's the specific layout for our indicator, as well as some awesome instant color changing flowers, and red cabbage indicator science:

I've been SNOPED!!! 

It is such a great feeling to know that my photos and the article that I spent so many hours pouring through research to write, stood up to a skeptical inquiry from Snopes. I am SO proud!!! :D

We started with her very first trip to the comic book store. There, she found out about Free Comic Book Day and the costume contest! She drafted and designed her very first cosplay and TOTALLY NAILED IT!!! 

Also... she TOTALLY won that contest!

Now she's off to Phoenix Comicon to see if she can find the "Grown up Wonder Woman"! If she finds her, she wants to talk shop and ask some questions about the Justice League...

Katie's costume took less than $25 to make. We've got her tutorial inside! I am so proud of her for taking her idea and persevering to bring it to a reality. Great job, Katie!
