    Hi there
    just got a little bit curious about some kind of experiments to do yourself at home after watching ガリレオ and would like to know if you know some nice things ?

    I think one well known example would be with making those bubbles like in bubble tea with sodium alginate and calcium chloride


    And I would like to know if someone tried that experiment from the series,
    They used soluble starch and wrote letters on it with an water resistand oil pen,
    after putting those starch plates into water it "melted" and the letters were left swimming on the water.
    (if that works maybe this could be done with food coloring too and be used as a joke when you have dinner, writing something in the soup of someone else or something like that ^^)
