Hooked on Science: Banana hammer
Did you know you can turn a banana into a hammer when the temperature outside dips below freezing?
STEP 1: When the temperature gets below freezing place a banana outside before bed.
STEP 2: When you wake up in the morning, grab a nail, board and the frozen banana.
STEP 3: Using the rock-hard banana, hammer the nail into the board.
When you placed the banana outside in below-freezing temperatures, over a period of time, the water inside the banana froze solid.
