The Children Library Complex’s recently played host to the Khwarizmi Science Society (KSS) on it’s annual festival, and it was a delight to see the young minds of our future engaged in a world of scientific wonders as we brought four of our major demonstrations forward.

One of the most crowd-favorite was the balloon experiment with liquid nitrogen. Children were asked whether it was possible to fit three balloons into a small box. With resounding “NO’s”, they watched as the balloons were submerged in liquid nitrogen, causing them to shrink. The magical part came when the balloons were retrieved – they expanded back to their original shape! This experiment not only showcased the fascinating properties of liquid nitrogen but also taught kids about its low temperature and the effects of extreme cold on objects.
