When was the last time you boarded a jet (like a Boeing 737)? Have you ever stopped to think
how such an enormous piece of metal can fly 30,000 feet in the air and cross wide oceans? As
the plane cruises high above the clouds, have you ever tried closing your eyes and imagine how
your body is being propeled hundreds of miles per hour through the air? The jet plane is an
amazing result of human invention and discovery. Yet, it was only because two young American
bicycle mechanics dreamed this dream, that we are able to enjoy the benefits of flight.
As young boys, Orville and Wilbur Wright were given a flying toy made of cork and bamboo by
their father. It had a paper body and was powered by rubber bands. Though the toy didn't last
very long, it inspired the boys to imagine and believe that human flight would one day be
In 1892, while in their early twenties, they opened a bicycle shop together to pay the bills.
Although they worked as mechanics, their dream was always to achieve human flight. They
researched and experimented in their own workshop tirelessly. They never gave up. Finally, on
December 17, 1903, these two young bicycle mechanics made history by achieving human flight.
This story has always inspired us. It is our hope that one day, young, creative minds like
you or your child's will change the world as the Wright brothers have.
We have designed this site to help you and your child search for useful ideas and tips
for your experiments. Here, you will find hundreds of experiments of every kind in every
discipline of science from chemistry, biology, physics to human psychology.
We're confident that our powerful color-coded search tool will help your research tremendously.
Also, experience shows that many people find it helpful to learn from what
others already know. We strongly suggest that instead of copying these experiments blindly, you
should try to understand the principles demonstrated, then take those principles and apply them
to your own experiment in a different and more creative way.
It's our sincerest hope that the information provided by this site will serve you well
in guiding and inspiring your child.
