Orpheum Children's Science Museum

Moore group members Alex Prokup and Susan Odom have been involved in summer science camps at the Orpheum Children's Science Museum in Champaign, Illinois.

Alex and Susan designed and organized experiments for the museum's Food Science and Forensic Science day camps. As pictured below, children in a Food Science day camp are learning how to use simple kitchen ingredients - with a little help from dry ice and liquid nitrogen — to perform science experiments. After the organized experiments, which included making ice cream with liquid nitrogen and volcanoes from baking soda and vinegar, the students in this age group seemed most fascinated with making witches' brews by combining dry ice with various liquids.
