G. Wiz visits Science Lab!
Chemisty Professor Garon Smith, from University of Montana, AKA "G. Wiz" the chemistry wizard, paid a visit to 4th grade in early January, 2011. "It was awesome! Where can I get some of that stuff?" exclaimed one student as G Wiz performed his science magic with us. Students discovered magic ink, the weight of a lead brick, the freezing crystal spell, Mom's Magic Juice Pitcher, colored fire for each of the Hogwarts Houses, making a molten "lava" ball, and the fun of using liquid nitrogen (-196 degrees C) to freeze a balloon full of air and eating cheese puffs frozen in the liquid nitrogen. What happens to them you ask? Find a 4th grader and ask them.
