  1. Really interesting demos! That being said, I'm concerned that you're advocating for some unsafe experimentation practices/prepping for experiments (e.g. with the liquid air, drill). Would strongly encourage adding notes on how to do those set ups safely and putting a note on the video.

  2. Great ideas! While I was aware of most, I never thought to use the duster to cool a balloon, and will definitely be using that next year with Gas Laws. Neat how duster is used similarly in the 10 Cloverfield Lane movie that just came out!
