Peepocalypse Now: Destroying Marshmallows for Science

If you want to get kids into a museum, destroying squidgy marshmallow candy seems to be the way to go. At the Rochester Museum asn Science Center, staff have taken that very approach. Leveraging kids' love of sweets and their curiosity towards blowing stuff up, Tim Cawley and company have devised a novel antidote for science apathy.

The Peeps became huge. Then Cawley let air back into the jar. The Peeps shrunk instantaneously, to the crowd's delight.

"They really taste nasty without the air in them. I don't know what it is," Cawley said, holding up a shriveled Peep. "But should you eat your science experiments?"

"No!" the children replied.

Jesse King, 11, of Lyons, Wayne County, watched the presentation with his parents and sister.

"It was good, but there were no explosions," he said. "Me and my dad were hoping."
