Minnesota – It’s so cold that… you can pound a nail with a frozen banana. Watch and subscribe all of the Minnesota Cold Weather Experiments: www.youtube.com/nziegler .


  • Banana
  • Nail
  • Wooden board


  1. Take a banana and leave it outside on a cold winter day until it is frozen solid.
  2. Forget about a hammer! Use the frozen banana to pound the nail into the board (or your chosen surface).

Helpful Hints:

  • Pound the nail and not your hand.
  • If you’ve got a large construction project, maybe forget the banana and remember a hammer again.
