{June 14, 2011}   Summer Science Party

So my friend Steve, is the New Bill Nye the Science Guy, in my book! He just hosted one of the best parties I’ve ever been to. Of course there was beer and wine but best of all there was science and fire involved! First crystal growing…

Then he mixed some cabbage juice with different chemicals including baking soda, Alka-Seltzer, and vinegar.

What sweet Colors! Cowabunga! You can find a similar project here  .

Then the kabang! Fire!

This is the time of year when our eyes start to see pinks, purples, whites, and blues highlighting roadsides everywhere. Lupines have a rich history that reaches back into the Egyptian era. Lupines seeds have been uncovered by archaeologists in the tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs. There is also evidence showing that pre-Inca inhabitants in Peru cultivated lupines. In ancient and medieval times they were used as a food source. However they soon learned not all varieties of lupines were edible. Many common types are toxic and now are only grown for their vibrant colors.
