Magnetic Poles For Kids | Science Experiment

Playing with magnets is always fun. We bought some very strong magnets recently and they are perfect to show what magnetic field looks like. Magnet attracts iron and the magnetism can act through many materials such as paper.  When iron filings are spread over the magnets, you can see the outline of the magnetic force or…

Cool Rainbow Color Experiment

Kids are fascinated by rainbows. A rainbow is the result of light reflection, refraction and dispersion through water droplets in the air. A spectrum of rainbow color can usually be seen after rainfall when the air is full of moisture. Among the spectrum of colors, red, blue and yellow are primary colors. They can be combined…

Water Pressure Experiment

Pressure is the amount of force that is exerted on something. Gravity causes pressure naturally. Water pressure is the force created by the weight of water. When you jump into a pool, you can feel the force pushing around you. Water pressure can push water through pipes and hoses. Here is an easy water pressure experiment….

Life Cycle of Silkworm

Silkworms are native in China. They spin cocoons of fine, strong and lustrous fiber which can be used to produce raw silk. Silkworms are domesticated insects which means they cannot survive in the wild by themselves.   The practice of breeding silkworms for silk production has existed for at least 5,000 years in China. Silkworm…

Do Grapes Sink Or Float? | Salt Water Density Experiment

Do grapes sink or float? Grapes can do both. Whether a grape sinks or floats depends on its density relative to the water it’s in. An object’s buoyancy is determined by its density compared with the density of the surrounding water. Density of water can be changed by adding salt. Let’s try this experiment to…
