Families of UT Faculty, Staff, and Students were welcomed the previous Spooky Sunday to the Frank Erwin Center for the annual Longhorn Halloween. CGC sponsored a booth with the following spooky science demonstrations: dry ice boo bubbles (or ghost bubbles), self-inflating ghosts, and excavating skeletons from orange oobleck. Thank you goes to Jonathan Thompson, Juliette Strasser, Austin Paul-Orecchio, Samantha Lauro, Kylie Heupel, Amanda Helms, and Calla McCulley for volunteering at our booth!
Thinkery21: It Came from the Future
Kelly Liang, Ginny James, Jamie Butalewicz, and Calla McCulley led the adult community of Austin on a Mission to Marshmallow on the evening of Thursday, October 10! These volunteers served liquid-nitrogen dipped marshmallows while serving science about the process of deep-freezing food and cryogens in general (“No sir, please don’t put your hand in liquid nitrogen if you want to keep your hand”). Participants were able to become Viserion for the night as they breathed their ice dragon breath while chomping down on the marshmallows. Check out the pictures below and catch us at the next Thinkery21 event!
Thinkery21: Forces of Nature
Earth, Fire, Wind, Water, and Heart were elements we recently displayed at our booth for Thinkery21! CGC hosted a few demonstrations at Thinkery21: Forces of Nature on August 22nd. The adult community of Austin learned about magic sand, colored fire, how tornadoes form, and the buoyancy of water versus the weight of a boat through hands-on demos. Pictures from the event are below. Thank you to Sofia Shubert, Michael Floto, Kelly Liang, Joey Gurrentz, Jamie Butalewicz, Amanda Helms, Ginny James, Mariah Austin, Will Sullivan, Dan Cooke, Matt Mlsna, and Calla McCulley for volunteering! 🙂
