Science educator, Eric Muller, creates fun kitchen experiments using everyday objects.  In the experiment du jour, Evan and Eric create sounds with a turkey baster and bend water using static electricity.

Eric is a science educator and teacher of teachers at the Exploratorium, a museum of science, perception and art in San Francisco, California.  A former fellow of Tufts University's Wright Center for Innovation in Science Education, he was also a high school science teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years. His latest book, While You're Waiting for the Food to Come: Experiments and Tricks that Can Be Done at a Restaurant, is a collection of science activities you can do at a restaurant or at home. He can be heard monthly on NPR's Sounds Like Science program.
