Another Science Girl

"Can I keep these pennies, Dad?" We have a standing rule in our house that if you find loose change lying around, you get to keep it. Big A found a couple of pennies in my car while we were on our way out to breakfast, and decided that today would be a great day to do some science experiments. Her sister is visiting my parents for the weekend, and she's been having a lot of fun being the center of attention. She had done an experiment at preschool that involves mixing water, white vinegar and salt into a solution, and dropping in a bunch dirty pennies. Turns out, it works! We were able to make some nasty old pennies look brand new! And big A, who is usually relegated to the "Igor the Assistant" role in her sisters science projects, got to be the lead scientist. And everybody needs that once in a while!
