Chemists dabble in Nitrogen

COLDER THAN ICE. On Fri., March 23, all chemistry classes experienced Liquid Nitrogen Day. Chemistry teachers Mr. Chad Husting and Mrs. Margaret Stone used liquid nitrogen donated by the Wright Brothers, Inc. gas company to demonstrate the interesting results of the chemical’s varied properties. A student favorite was the demo where Stone soaked crackers in the liquid nitrogen and allowed students to eat them. When the students exhaled with the crackers in their mouths, nitrogen gas streamed out of their noses.
