|Matiu the scientist|
This morning it was so cold that Matiu and I stayed home while Megan accompanied Dom to the airport - and we decided (on the strength of his excitement about science at the moment) to conduct an experiment. We lined up 6 plastic cups and put different liquids in each of them (oil, water, fizzy drink, vinegar, maple syrup & water, and a mixture of all five), then put them outside. Every half an hour we brought them in and had a look at the freezing process for each: we recorded the state of each liquid, compared the liquids, and talked about why they might be behaving differently in the same conditions. We skyped with Mum and Dad and he went into great detail, describing the experiment and what we'd found. He's growing up, our boy!
'Bye bye baby' indeed.
