Mad Science Experiments

As part of our 2020 social media campaign, we want to get you involved in seeing science in action. Every month we will add a new, simple experiment you can do at home, with kids, in a classroom, around the office, etc. These experiments will demonstrate the concepts we are talking about on social media. If you follow along, tag us in your pictures with @SafePlatesFSIC or #safeplates2020 so we can see your results.
