Sarah’s Science Experiments with Dry Ice

Looking for a fun and interactive way to learn about science? Check out GMSA@9 on Wednesdays as Meteorologist Sarah Spivey does the demonstrations and explains the science behind it! Science with Sarah is in partnership with the San Antonio Zoo (Copyright KSAT 2023 – All rights reserved).

If you’re interested in conducting your own science experiments at home, here’s what you’ll need:

* Dry ice (NEVER HANDLE DRY ICE WITHOUT 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

* BILLIONS OF BUBBLES: Water, soap

Here are the steps to conduct each experiment:

DRY ICE BIG BUBBLE:

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.

EXTINGUISHING CANDLE:

1. Place a tea light inside of a Tupperware and light the candle.

2. Place some dry ice around the candle and watch as it slowly extinguishes.

DRY ICE “INSTRUMENT”:

1. Place a small piece of dry ice on the table in front of you.
