Mad Science at Seaway Mall

Dec 16, 2012 12:00 AM

Welland - WELLAND - Children sitting in front of the Mad Science flinched when Kosmic went to toss water from a cup on them.

The cup, which was supposed to be holding a ball she was trying to make disappear, was actually full of water just a few seconds before.

She then put the cup over her head and made a few faces as she turned it over.

But thanks to a trick of science, and sleight of hand, Kosmic didn't get wet.

She'd turned the water into a gel by slipping a powder without the children or adults in the crowd, at the court in front of Sears in Seaway mall, noticing.

"I'm doing experiments around Christmas today, using dry ice and environmentally-friendly experiments," said Kosmic, who doesn't use her real name when performing for Mad Science across Niagara.

She also talked about ways people can be more environmentally-friendly when it comes to wrapping gifts and packages and sending them out.

Kosmic brought two girls on stage and had one wrap the other, and then tie a bow around, her to show other materials that can used for gifts. Materials that can be recycled.

Using dry ice, she made 'smoke' that she poured over a child's head and smoke the children could safely inhale. Dry smoke is the solid form of carbon dioxide.

Kosmic made smoke come out of the flask when she put the dry ice in water, drawing some oohs and ahs from the children.

"I'll make a bubbling potion out of the dry ice with bubbles that come out of flask."

Children came up on the stage to catch bubbles she made with a pump. When the children were off the stage, she set the bubbles on fire.

In one demonstration, during the hour long performance, she put a balloon over the top of a flask and the carbon dioxide and made it expand, before letting the balloon fly loose.
