Maoz Tzur and Happy Hanukkah From Chemistry Students at Israel's Technion


Haifa's Technion - Israel Institute of Technology can always be counted on to come up with clever and inventive ways to welcome Jewish holidays. 

This Chanukah is no exception as the students of the Technion's General Chemistry Student Laboratory bring us their version of the traditional Chanukah song Maoz Tzur.

What's their innovation this time? Filling laboratory flasks to different levels producing the notes of the musical scale, in effect creating a new instrument.

Enjoy!
