East Kentucky Science Center Offers Science Lesson

Some people got a science lesson Saturday morning at the East Kentucky Science Center.

Scientists showed all the cool and hot things you can do with heat. They used liquid nitrogen to create heat and then showed just what it can do to different things. Objects like flowers, bouncing balls, even pennies looked frozen and then shattered to pieces or were solid enough to pound a nail all after being dipped in the heated liquid nitrogen.

"To minus 360 degrees, it still has energy in it because there's still enough heat left to have some sort of energy. It has to go to absolute zero for it to have no heat left and that's what we were showing here," said Mike Burchett with the East Kentucky Science Center.

Saturday’s event was part of the Science Center's Discovery Saturday series.
