Surfing the Microwaves: Grapes

Plasma can be found on stars, lighting and...grapes? Watch as Mr. O shows you how he found plasma in a half cut grapes using and a microwave.

Mr. O does NOT recommend you do this experiment at home, mostly due to the chance you could damage your microwave.

Mr. O’s “O Wow Moments” help you to become an scientist at home with hands-on, minds-on experiments and demos! Watch Mr. O every Saturday morning during the 7 a.m. news on Houston's KPRC Local 2 to see a new science demo you can try at home. Share your experiments with us on facebook and Instragram!
