Spot on Science: Elephant Toothpaste with Dr. Fus

TRANSFORMING POLLUTION INTO PAINT MIGHT SEEM LIKE MAGIC, BUT IT’S ACTUALLY JUST CHEMISTRY. CHEMISTRY IS A BRANCH OF SCIENCE THAT DEALS WITH SUBSTANCES OR CHEMICALS. IT INVESTIGATES THEIR PROPERTIES AND HOW THEY INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT IT, OUR SCIENCE CORRESPONDENT MARGARET THOMPSON MET WITH A PROFESSOR OF CHEMISTRY, KNOWN FOR HIS VIRAL EXPERIMENTS.

ANYONE HAVE AN ELEPHANT WHO NEEDS TO VISIT THE DENTIST? ANYONE? HUMM GUESS THE ELEPHANT TOOTHPASTE I MADE WITH DR. FUS WILL GO TO WASTE, BUT AT LEAST I LEARNED SOMETHING! DR. FUS IS A CHEMISTRY PROFESSOR FROM OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY. HE DOES A LOT OF EXPERIMENTS THAT YOU CAN SEE ON YOUTUBE ONLINE. THEY’RE ACTUALLY PRETTY COOL, SO I WAS EXCITED THAT HE WAS ABLE TO STOP BY AND TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT CHEMISTRY AND CHEMICAL REACTIONS. TAKE A LOOK!
