What happens when an investigation goes wrong?
This is a priceless video of a water filtration accident gone bad. Subject in email from student was, Want to laugh? Obviously, the student’s initial reaction was a bit different… but what you don’t hear is her mother laughing in the background. A huge shout-out to parents everywhere supporting their kids STEM inquiry!
WAIT! How’d they build that????
