Minnesota, it’s so cold that… if you throw a pot of boiling water off a seven story building, it vaporizes before it hits the ground. Watch and subscribe to the Minnesota Cold Weather Experiments: http://www.youtube.com/nziegler . Special thanks to Steve Carlisle for his assistance in this video.

Materials:

  • Pot of boiling water
  • A very high building
  • A really cold day

Steps:

  1. Boil a large pot of water on the stove or on a burner. (You may have to reheat it when you get to the top floor.)
  2. On the roof of a very tall building, carefully approach the edge.
  3. Throw the pot of water off the edge of the building.

Helpful Hints:

  • Make sure that it is a building that people do not walk next to. If not all of the water vaporizes, you may burn someone with the boiling water.
  • Have someone watch it from below (not directly below). That’s the best view.

Minnesota, it’s so cold that… you can make a human snowball out of frozen towels and roll it down the hill with someone inside. Special thanks to Hugh Brown for going into the human snowball and  Steve Carlisle for helping shoot some of the video. Watch and subscribe all of the Minnesota Cold Weather Experiments: www.youtube.com/nziegler .

Materials:

  • Large inflatable ball
  • Thin towels
  • Camping chairs
  • Watering can
  • Knife
  • Large hill
  • Cold temperatures

Steps:

  1. Inflate a large inflatable ball. Start in the house, then move outside.
  2. Cover the ball with layers of wet towels.
  3. Cut a hatch in the towels so you can get in and out.
  4. Pour water over the towels until a thicker layer of ice has formed (about 15 times).
  5. Cut the hatch back open and bring your human snowball to a large hill.
  6. Put someone inside of the human snowball (with a helmet), then cover the hatch with a wet towel.
  7. Push them down the hill and help them get out if the ball doesn’t break.
  8. Repeat if the ball isn’t crushed.

Helpful Hints:

  • Make sure it’s really cold. The towels and layers of ice freeze much faster that way.
  • Don’t inflate the ball too much or else it will pop.
