What happens to this pickle may be shocking!

Rick Crosslin, scientist in residence at MSD Wayne Township joined us today with two spooky experiments.

First, he showed how electricity can flow through a pickle, causing it to light up using the Thomas Edison Filament.

Then he showed how the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide makes a giant cloud of smoke come out of a bottle. He says, this is the same technique used in “I Dream of Jeannie” when she pops out of the bottle.

You can see Rick Crosslin and Keith Ramsey, MSD Wayne Township science teacher, at Conner Prairie this weekend presenting dozens of spooky experiments like this!

It’s happening on Saturday, October 30 from 6:15 p.m. and 7:45 p.m.
