Jell-O Science

by Lynne Belluscio

   The Historical Society was getting ready to do some Jell-O Science before the schools closed down, but maybe you’d enjoy doing some science experiments with your kids or grandkids - - and then you get to eat it.  So the first experiment is “Sink or Float.” You’ll need a couple of boxes of Jell-O and a bunch of fruit and vegetables and some cups. This is an experiment to discover density.  Here is a list of stuff you can test:

Shredded carrots

Sliced bananas

Canned pears

Canned mandarin oranges

Strawberries

Mini Marshmallows

Chopped nuts

Apple slices

Apple sauce

Gummy fish. . .
