Defy gravity in this simple trick! All you need is a glass full of water and some cardboard and you will be able to show off a cool use of air pressure that makes this activity seem like a magic trick.
Everyone knows that sharp objects and balloons don’t mix, so you might be surprised by the results of this fun activity! Observe how the polymers in a balloon allow it to withstand the stress of a pointy skewer. We promise you won’t hear any loud pops while completing this experiment!
In this simple experiment, play with the properties of water to create an impressive reaction. Because water molecules are attracted to one another, they create surface tension that can be broken by a substance such as soap. See how the break in surface tension affects the pepper resting atop it.
Celebrate Earth Science Week by creating your very own cloud in this demonstration! We love learning more about the earth and how it works, and earth science helps us do just that. Observe what happens as condensation forms and collects on smoke particles from an extinguished match. Make sure you have adult supervision when completing this experiment.
