In this video, I used a hair dryer to blow air over the surface of a container filled with water and food coloring. In the first part of the video, I put the hair dryer on low speed and gradually put the air flow over the container. This lets us see the wind-driven surface waves that form (Hertzberg). Then I sped up the video to the second part where I switched the hair dryer to high speed and saw the difference in wave formation.

    Creating waves with a hairdryer is a very creative idea. Nicely done, Megan. I like the very bright highlights on the waves.

    Really love the contrast between the bright red and the pitch black background. Very elegant.

  • This video balances aesthetic with scientific usefulness very well.

    Awesome videos, I like how you gave background on how the waves were formed, the waves were moving radially outwards which is super appealing! Great job Megan!

    I really like how the background noise is just the hairdryer and no music is added which makes the video more impactful.
