Science and technology and fun all combine into one fantastic event at the Franklin Institute. The date is December 8th, 2012. The time is 2 p.m.. What does it all mean? Simple and easy answer is Crazy Aaron’s Puttyworld and Franklin Institute team up to bring to the world the great Putty Drop of 2012. Find out what happens when 50 pounds of putty gets dropped from the ceiling of the Franklin Institute. Will it bounce? Will it shatter into thousands of pieces? Will it stretch out onto the floor? Find out for yourself on December 8th.
During the event, Puttyworld’s founder “Crazy” Aaron will be dressed in his signature lab coat and hat to provide an interactive and engaging, 30-minute demonstration of wacky putty science. Activities will incorporate lessons on chemistry, mass, polymers and more. Prior to The Great Putty Drop, the audience will make predictions about what will happen when the giant ball of putty is dropped from 42 feet in the air and plummets to the floor.
“This is the first time an enormous ball of putty will be dropped from the top of The Franklin Institute, and we are so excited to partner with them to bring fun and interactive putty science to the museum’s visitors,” said Aaron Muderick, founder of Crazy Aaron’s Puttyworld. “I love creating situations where kids and adults are able to reconnect to the sciences of the physical world.”
Puttyworld will give complimentary mini-tins of Heat-Sensitive Hypercolor Sunburst Thinking Putty to each Great Putty Drop audience member to take home and continue their putty science education. Large containers of Thinking Putty will also be available for $14.99 each in The Franklin Institute’s Sci-Store.
