Photosynthesis And Respiration In Plants

What is Respiration in Plants All living things use a process called respiration to get energy to stay alive. Cellular respiration in plants is the process used by plants to convert the glucose made during photosynthesis into energy which fuels the plants’ cellular activities. On the other hand, photosynthesis is the process where light energy…

Grow A Crystal Angel Ornament – Science Experiment

One of the most salient properties of water is its ability to dissolve other materials. In this experiment, you will dissolve Borax powder into the water to create a saturated solution. A solution is saturated when no more powder can be absorbed. Water can dissolve more powder when it is hot. In this experiment, you…

Why Is The Sky Blue? Simple Science (Video)

The Blue Sky On a clear day, the sky is nothing more than the air in the atmosphere. The air itself or the sunlight doesn’t seem to contain any color. So why is the sky blue if sunlight is colorless? The sky is blue due to the scattering of light by tiny particles in the…

Borax Crystal Ornaments

Is it Christmas time already? Let’s create some homemade crystal ornaments with the kids. Kids will learn some science while decorating the Christmas tree with ornaments they create. In this experiment, we will use a saturated solution made out of Borax powder. This is a perfectly safe experiment for kids under adult supervision. You can…

Rising Water Experiment

We normally don’t play with fire (for obvious reasons). But here is a experiment I didn’t expect to be so easy and so much fun to do. At the same time, the results are so hard to understand, with, sadly, much misleading information on the internet. As always, adult supervision is required! THERE IS FIRE INVOLVED Why The…

Floating Rice – Friction Experiment

Friction Experiment This experiment is about friction. Friction allows us to walk on the road instead of sliding on it. It also lets us pick up a piece of paper or a glass of milk. You can also pick up rice grains using a pair of chopsticks all because of friction. In this experiment, you…

Fun Milk And Vinegar Plastic Experiment

What Is Plastic Made Out Of? What happens when you mix milk with vinegar? What is plastic made out of? What do stone, buttermilk, yogurt and cheese have in common? So many questions I had in mind after researching for this milk curdling experiment. There are various experiments and articles online that indicate mixing milk with…

Color Science & Art | Coffee Filter Flowers

Is black really black? What happens when all the rainbow colors blend together? We will be able to answer these questions after doing some science investigation. In this experiment, we will use coffee filter to investigate color properties. We will make a beautiful bouquet of flowers along the way, too! It’s a combination of a coffee…

Does Water Conduct Electricity? Simple Experiment

“Don’t touch a switch with wet hands!” We were all taught that since we were little kids. It does seem like water can conduct electricity and that is why we shouldn’t touch any electrical outlet or switches if our hands are not dry. Does water really conduct electricity? Let’s find out by doing a simple controlled…

Sugar Water Rainbow | Density and Air Pressure Experiment

Density is the amount of substance (mass) within the volume occupied by the object. If two cups have the same amount of water (i.e. same volume), the one with more sugar is denser than the one with less sugar. Buoyancy is determined by relative density. The solution with less density floats above the solution with…

How Are Ocean Currents Formed | Water Convection Experiment

How Are Ocean Currents Formed Ocean currents are formed in several ways. They can be created by wind, by gravity, by events such as earthquakes. They can also be made by density differences in the water. Density in the water changes when temperature or salinity varies. In this experiment, we will investigate how temperature can affect…

How To Build Simple DC Motor (Video)

Electrical devices such as refrigerator, television and vacuum cleaners require electricity to operate. Do you know how electricity is created? And how do batteries operate a motor? Electricity is created using magnetic field. If you have a strong magnet and a battery, you can make a simple homemade motor. Try this very cool experiment. And…

Can A Raw Egg Grow? | Science Projects With Eggs

In this experiment, we first see an acid-base reaction. Eggshells contain calcium carbonate which is a base while vinegar contains acetic acid. When you submerge an egg in vinegar, an acid-base reaction causes the calcium carbonate to break down into their calcium and carbonate parts. The calcium ions (as in calcium acetate) stay dissolved in…

Build Marble Roller Coaster | STEM

Have you ever wondered why the string of roller coaster cars is pulled up to the crest of the tallest point on the roller coaster before rolling downhill to the loop? Why do the cars not fall off even when they are upside down inside the loop? The roller coaster is a great demonstration of the law…
