Who hasn't blown up a marshmallow Peep in the microwave? Now the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix wants your family to devise an experiment or activity featuring the sugary sticky Easter basket fave - and videotape it.

The video, no longer than four minutes long, should be filmed at 4K or 720 x 480 resolution, and should include narration. Arizona residents with children in grades K-12 are eligible to enter.

Go to http://k12familysciencecontest.eventbrite.com/ for more information and to register and upload your video by 11:50 p.m. May 13. A panel will judge the entries based on accurate scientific content, presentation, and creativity. The top three entrants will win a family membership to Arizona Science Center in Phoenix, and their videos will be shown at the center and posted online at azscience.org and on the center's YouTube channel and Facebook page.
