This whole experiment is stolen directly from the pages of the Power of Our People blog. Wait a minute- they’re the ones who gave us the beans, too. Call us posers if you will. These things are cool and downright weird all at the same time.
The appear to be seeds that, when exposed to heat and sound, hop and wiggle all over the place. Shortly after this picture was taken, 3 of them wound up on the floor (so much for the target game)! They spend large amounts of time in the cool, dark pantry as the sound of them rattling in the bowl became unnerving. So neat!
