1  Water Molecule sugar cookies in Dessert by pixie424 on: December 22, 2007 09:58:14 AM
I made these Bohr's atomic models of water molecules out of sugar cookies as a small holiday gift for my coworkers at a children's science museum.  The mini chocolate chips are the electrons.  (Larger atom = Oxygen with 8 electrons. 2 in inner atomic ring, 6 in outer atomic ring.  The smaller atoms bonded onto Oxygen are the Hydrogen atoms with only one atomic ring and electron which bonds onto the outer ring of the Oxygen atom.)  Edible science!

Hi!  Sorry for the delay in posting the pictures- I didn't have too much computer access the past couple of days.  Here are the photos of the package I received from crazykittylady (sorry for the fuzzy cell phone camera pix!):

The germ cell ring.  It looks like it was painted with a technique similar to reverse glass painting!

The enlarged plush mono microbe.  This seems like a much cuter version of mono than the real one I had a couple of years ago!

The germy bracelet with very germ cell like fun glass beads.

3 shrinky dinks of germ cells.

Thanks crazykittylady!

There were a couple of requests earlier for closer pix on some of the things I sent to cumber1137 too so here's a closer view of one of them (I hope you don't mind cumber1137) For some reason I had trouble getting the pictures on the computer of the other ones but to answer one of the questions the fabric is of the night stars (She mentioned she was interested in stars/astronomy).  If you look closely on the fabric you can even find  a couple of constellations.  The belt has a hidden zipper (my first zipper!) on the inside so it can be used discreetly as a wallet of sorts (I followed a tutorial off of cumber1137's wist list).

Still not the greatest photo but you can kind of see - the magnets are of all of the planets in our solar system.  Pluto is in there too despite the controversy on its status but I did use NASA images so Pluto ended up just being a tiny dot - their way of showing it's a dwarf planet.

Sorry so long but I hope everyone's well and best wishes for a great holiday season!
