Dry ice, or frozen carbon dioxide, is both absurdly cold and also incredibly handy to have.

It works better than ice at keeping things cold, and it also has a very neat trait of going straight from a solid to a gas.

We visited Mcgrath Elementary School in Grand Blanc to try out a couple of experiments using dry ice.

CAUTION: Always wear protective insulated gloves when handling dry ice.
