Today I was just fooling around with dry ice and I thought that the dry ice vapor combined with water could make a fountain. But now I present you with... The Dry Ice Water Fountain v.1.0!
P.S. This is my first Instructable.(Yay!)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get Your Supplies
A length of threaded PVC that sticks out about 6" from the top of the bottle
A shrub sprinkler head
A 2 liter bottle
Some Dry Ice
Step 2: Disassemble Your Sprinkler Head
First, twist the top off. You should have 3 parts, the body, the grate thingy, and the head. You will notic a screw in the head; take the screw out and put it in your parts bin. You should also remove the grate thingy.
Step 3: Reassemble Your Sprinkler Head
Screw the top back on and screw the entire sprinkler onto the threaded piece of PVC pipe
Step 4: Prepping the Bottle
First, take your bottle and fill it with water. Then add abot a cupfull of dry ice chunks or pellets.
Step 5: The Finale
Now for the fun bit, take your PVC pipe and shove it down until it is almost touching the bottom, and...stand back! ( Unless you want to chill off on a hot summer day, that also fine)
