Watch this young scientist perform a few "magic" tricks in a series of water experiments. Air pressure, is what makes these tricks possible.
Physics Science Projects
Make a fireball in a bottle, with some rubbing alcohol, a match and an empty bottle. Why is it important to squeeze the bottle a few times before igniting the fireball? Watch and find out!
WARNING: This experiment should be performed only by adults.
In this experiment, we learn how to make a floating candle rise in an inverted beaker, using air pressure. As the candle burns, it uses up air in the beaker, making the air pressure in the beaker lower than the pressure outside. This forces more water into the beaker and the candle floats!
An easy science experiment demonstrating how to crush a can with air pressure. Adult assistance is required.
Make your own paper clip magnet with a glass of water, a paper clip and some liquid soap. Do you know why the paper clip rotates?
It's so easy to make your very own "Density Tower". Stack up different substances, of different densities in a tall glass.
Add these items into your glass in the following order:
3. Dish Soap
4. Water (colored using food coloring)
5. Vegetable oil
6. Rubbing alcohol (colored using food coloring)
Try using other common household liquids. This simple yet fun experiment helps us understand the concept of density.
If you've never tried this classic science experiment - then it's about time you do so! Squeeze the egg through the neck of the bottle, without pushing or breaking the egg!
This cool science experiment demonstrates how to make a "Fireproof" balloon, that doesn't pop even when exposed to the flame of a candle!
This cool science project demonstrates how a candle can swing or see-saw on its own, without the help of any wind, pushing or pulling.
Warning: Only to be performed under adult supervision.
With a simple candle and matchstick, you can demonstrate how flames can jump from the candle to the match and back again!
Warning: This experiment should be performed by adults only!
