Scientific Tuesdays – Turn Styrofoam into Hard Plastic!

Finger nail polish dissolves styrofoam. What we do with the left over goop is up to us. When we gather the left overs after dissolving styrofoam we can turn it into our own homemade plastic. All you need is some styrofoam, some 100% pure acetone (nail polish remover) and a little free time.
