Mr. Science: [singing] Oh chemistry, oh chemistry
how lovely are thy eye on
Dr. Science: I love that song sodium much. Hey kids, Dr. Science.
Mr. Science: And I’m Mr. Science.
Dr. Science: And what better time than the holidays to learn about the science of snow.
Mr. Science: Helping us out today are today’s Junior volunteers, Lonnie and Josh.
Mr. Science: Happy holidays guys. Lonnie, what’s your favorite holiday tradition?
Lonnie: Oh, Christmas.
Mr. Science: Okay, well, I love Christmas myself. Josh, what do you want for Christmas?
Josh: Oh, to find out what happened to my brother.
Mr. Science: Okay, well, I was not expecting that. I thought you’d say you want to skateboard or something, but I’m sure your brother will be fine. But hey, let’s talk about snow.
Dr. Science: Now, what do we know about snow? Well, for one, snow forms inside the big things in the sky called… Lonnie.
Mr. Science: No. Josh. Starts with a C.
Josh: Si Senor.
Mr. Science: No, the letter C. It’s a C word.
Lonnie: Oh, no. The C word is bad. We can’t say that.
Mr. Science: No, it’s not the C word. Josh. It’s big. It’s white. It’s puffy. It’s…
Josh: My dad.
Mr. Science: Clouds. Snow forms inside clouds.
Dr. Science: Hey, let’s think before we answer, okay?
Mr. Science: Yes, why not?
Dr. Science: Now, snow forms when it gets so cold that the water vapor inside the cloud does what? Lonnie.
Dr. Science: No. It’s how water turns into ice. It starts with an F. Josh.
Dr. Science: That’s double wrong, Josh. Come on guys starts with an F. Free…
Dr. Science: Guys. Freeze. Freeze. [Lonnie and Josh stop moving] No, not you. The word was freeze.
Mr. Science: Just like there are rain storms, there are also snow storms.
Mr. Science: I wasn’t asking, but yes that is true.
Josh: Yeah! [Josh and Lonnie do high five]
Mr. Science: No, you don’t high five each other based on… No don’t. No fist bump either. Just stop it. Stop right now.
Dr. Science: Okay, now, for our experiment today, we’re going to make our own snow storm. Now our snow storm will obviously not be as big as a real one. But even if something small, it can still…
Lonnie: Feel good for the girl.
Dr. Science: I don’t follow this.
Lonnie: Because my sister told me that even if a guy has a small thing, it can still feel good if the guy knows what he’s doing.
Dr. Science: Well, that’s a no. Teach a big lesson, you were very, very wrong.
Mr. Science: Your sister however is very, very right. Now, to do this at home, we’ll need some water and a glass. Baby oil. [Lonnie and Josh start playing with the experiment instruments] No, don’t touch that. Please. Stop it. Stop touching, please. Stop it.
Dr. Science: Make sure to have a grown up help you first. Safety first.
Mr. Science: I have a fun safety joke, Josh. KNOCK, KNOCK.
Josh: Come in.
Mr. Science: No, no. Josh, you say “knock knock who’s there?” Okay? Knock knock.
Josh: Who’s there?
Mr. Science: Safety.
Josh: Hi, I’m Josh.
Mr. Science: No, no. Do you know know how this works? You’ve never heard? You say “safety who”. Okay? Knock knock.
Josh: Safety who?
Dr. Science: Hey, hey, hey. Are you okay? Come back. Come back.
Mr. Science: Breathe in, breathe out. Breathe in, breathe out.
Dr. Science: Now, we put everything into our glass here except the Alka Seltzer, which we’re going to drop into simulate what happens when cold air meets warm air. Now, get in close guys. Three, two, one. Science. Wow, look. Josh, what’s going on?
Josh: Not much. We have two weeks off for winter break.
Dr. Science: No. Not what’s going on in your life? In here. What’s going on in here? Do you see what I see? What do you see?
Lonnie: Your finger.
Dr. Science: No. Do you see what I see? Something’s going on. Do you see what I see?
Lonnie: [singing] You see what I see
a star, a start,
dancing in the…
Dr. Science: Shut up, you idiots. Look what we made. It’s a it’s a…
Lonnie and Josh: It’s a me Mario.
Mr. Science: No. It’s not a me Mario. Go to commercial.
Dr. Science: I’m gonna turn the camera off.
