A quick science experiment you can craft at home, the "Fizz Inflator" takes simple reactions to inflate the balloon. Why? To teach how reactions create byproducts, in this case carbon dioxide, which is invisible - until you see it inflate the balloon!
A quick science experiment you can craft at home, Elephant Tooth Paste shows you how to instantly make a foam made up of many of the same components in toothpaste - but enough of it to clean an elephant's tusks. Be sure you do this with adult assistance, because it could be messy! Why? This project shows you how these types of ingredients combine with highly reactive results!
A quick science experiment you can craft at home, "Walking Water" teaches you about how liquids can move against gravity. Why? To show how capillary action allows liquids to move from one place to another without the help of gravity or other outside forces!
A quick science experiment you can craft at home, the "Soap Powered Boat" teaches you how to make a simple device that scoots around on the water's surface with no moving parts. Why? To teach how water's unique molecular makeup creates "surface tension," and how affecting that surface tension creates interesting results!
A quick science experiment you can craft at home, the "Remote Control Roller" teaches you how to make a simple device that uses the invisible forces of magnetic fields created by electrons to push objects around. Why? To show you how invisible magnetic fields effect the world around us!
A quick science experiment you can craft at home, the "Bee Hummer" teaches you how to make a simple device that uses the motion of the air to mimic the sound of a bee's wings. Why? To teach how bees create the humming and buzzing they are known for!
