Make a PVC Marshmallow Shooter!

May 6 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am PDT

Make a PVC Marshmallow Shooter!

Make your own PVC Marshmallow Shooter with Maker Camp Leader Sandy Roberts! Everyone is delighted by the weird physics of the Marshmallow Shooter. You load the mini marshmallow at the mouthpiece, and then blow sharply. Surprisingly, the marshmallow follows the curves inside the shooter and finds its way out the end of the barrel, no matter how crazy a shooter you build!

Watch the video premier then attend the LIVE Q&A on the Family Maker Camp FB page or on the Make: Youtube channel.
