GLOW IN THE DARK JELLO SCIENCE EXPERIMINT
All kiddos are unique but almost all kids love glowing things and jello, making this simple and fun glowing jello science experiment by a Halloween hit!
“Here’s a fun treat you can make for Halloween - GLOWING JELLO! Are you ready to have some Spooky Science Fun? Let’s make this weird glow in the dark jello together!”
Ou puppet friend Charlie explains that this isn’t actually “glow-in-the-dark” jello, because it doesn’t glow on its own. First, you shine a black light on it (UV or ultraviolet) - then the jello fluoresces out a different color light that we can see.
CAUTION: DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE BLACK LIGHT! UV LIGHT DAMAGES YOUR EYES.
Here’s what you need to make glowing jello at home:
1 package of Jello (any brand will do) - green works better than orange or red
1 cup boiling water
1 cup tonic water
Do you know which of these ingredients makes the jello glow? It’s the TONIC WATER. Tonic water contains a special ingredient called Quinine. Quinine is fluorescent. When you shine a black light at it, it absorbs the UV light and fluoresces out a blue light.
