Two off-the-cuff suggestions, probably needing refinement:

Small pieces of meat (or fruit, even) on a counter, in the fridge, 
or in the freezer; how long does each stay fresh?

Put 8 oz. of water in one small balloon, and 8 oz. of high-proof
(rubbing?) alcohol in another.  Draw a 2" line or circle on each
and put both in the freezer.  See which expands more.  

Live long and prosper,
