Namibia Visitors: Liquid Crystal

 In Get Your Science On, Shopcasts and Videos

Ignasius and Sherri from B2Gold Namibia join the Little Shop of Physics team for a demonstration of crystal growth in a supercooled liquid. The sodium acetate solution is below its freezing point. It wants to freeze, but it needs a seed crystal to get the process started. Once the seed is in place, the fun begins! Ignasius and Sherri were joined by other educators from Namibia as part of a two week workshop with the Little Shop folks. Stay tuned for more videos from their time with us!
