Connect with COSI: Indoor Snow

COLUMBUS, OH (WCMH) — Storm Team 4 Meteorologist Liz McGiffin met with COSI Offsite Education Director Kevin Seymour for a fun experiment where polymers and water can be used to create “snow” indoors. .

You can watch the experiment in action in the video player above.

When water is added, the polymer swells and retains moisture, giving it the appearance of snow. Polymers are found in everyday items such as diapers and can also be used in dry climates for agriculture.

Materials for this experiment can be found by searching online for “instant snow” or “magic snow.” again, COSI Connects Snow Kit.
