Science Fair Project (Hot Ice)
This is a brief video of a school science fair project that won first place. Sodium Acetate was used in the project to create "hot ice", a liquid substance that instantly turns solid when touched. The video is set to music with brief descriptions written on the screen.  No narration or explanation provided. Explanation: The reaction is exothermic and is often found in hand warmers. Run time 03:14.

Math Class: The Musical (A Musical Written and Produced by a Senior Math Class)
Words of the owner:

This is a short musical I wrote about my math class in the last week of school. The music is written and recorded by me, Leeran Z. Raphaely, with lyrics by myself and Matt Jensen. It was shot and co-edited by Michael Fishman. It stars Evan Sadler, Rachel Pedreira, Colin Ramsay, and other Schjelderup students.

The whole thing was filmed and edited in one day.
