OCTOBER 20, 2012
Science Saturday - Spooky Halloween

Looking for a way to make your Halloween sufficiently gross? Try these science projects from Science Bob's Blog.

Glowing Beverages:
Tonic water glows under a black light, making an eerie drink to pass out to your friends and family. The quinine in the tonic water makes the blue glow you'll see. Mix it with other ingredients (jello mix!) to see what you can create.

You can make your own slime using Elmer's glue, Borax, and the food coloring color of your choice. Follow the simple recipe and you'll be grossing out your family in no time!

Dancing Ghosts:
Make a 1 1/2 inch long ghost out of a tissue and set it on a table. Rub a balloon on your hair to build up static and slowly bring the balloon down to the ghost. The static will make the ghost rise up and dance!

For more cool science experiments you can do at home, check out the rest of Science Bob's Blog, or try our Science Online database.
