|It all starts with a question.|
|It requires the appropriate equipment.|
|The question in this case, what are we looking at?|
|Is it similar to anything you are familiar with?|
|We generated lots of possibilities.|
|Further observation using more than just our eyes, is it soft or|
rough? Pebbly or like sand?
|Crystals or a powder?|
|What happens when you add water?|
|Has it changed or does it look different?|
|Does it take up more space in the cup?|
|How does it feel? Hot or cold?|
|Could the property of evaporation . . .|
|or absorption explain what happened?|
|The insta-snow powder absorbed the water|
turning the powder into artificial snow.
