Camping in Yellowstone, we saw this popcorn at the general store. I wanted to see how it worked.
Too cool! It started popping and then it slowed before all of the tin foil had popped up. Since we didn’t want it to burn we took it off of the fire. Would it be done?
Sort of…a good number of kernels hadn’t popped. (And according to my son, it didn’t taste that good.) But it wasn’t a total loss because this brought about an impromptu science experiment. It started with a question: Would the kernels pop if we put it back over the fire?
It worked! This experimenting and redesigning of the tin foil contraptions kept the boys busy for quite a while.
