Insta-Snow Steals The Show!

Ordinarily, I talk about how students and young people of all types and sizes adore Insta-Snow and other products and experiments featured here.  However, don’t think for even a second that you have to be a child to have fun with science.  It’s not just children who are fascinated by Insta-Snow. Polymer science has the power to fascinate grown men and women –  sensible adults who are attending a serious conference and sharing business techniques and practices and products and advice, for example. I’ve seen it happen.
