Discover Winter Experiments
Be a scientist for a while in our BASF Lab and try some winter experiments!

Experiment 1: Which almond paste sample is real?
Real almond paste contains almonds. This is relatively expensive, so cheap almond paste is made of white beans and artificial flavourings. In this experiment you can discover which sample is the real thing.

Experiment 2: How does a rocket work?
A rocket produces a tremendous amount of power very quickly and shoots into the air. In this experiment you can make a rocket that uses a chemical reaction to launch.

Experiment 3: How does gritting salt affect ice?
During the winter, gritting salt is often scattered on the roads. That gets rid of any ice, but what happens exactly?

About NEMO Science Museum
NEMO challenges everyone – from young to old – to discover how fascinating and relevant science and technology are. We show how remarkable everyday things are, yet present abstract science in a way that is very accessible. NEMO encourages visitors to discover scientific phenomena for themselves, and triggers them to investigate further. In this way, we make knowledge accessible to a wide audience and bring science closer.
