Hi guys, today we are going to learn about 24 amazing science experiments. All these experiments are simple enough to do in your own home.
1: ELEPHANT TOOTHPASTE
What you need to do for this experiment is, pour 10 percent hydrogen peroxide into a flask with a little bit of dish soap and coloring of your choice. Then in a separate container, mix yeast with warm water. Pour into the flask, and you’ve got yourself toothpaste.
2: INVISIBLE INK
First, cut a lemon in half. Use either paintbrush or toothpick to take a bit of lemon juice at a time. Write your top-secret message out on a piece of paper. Then use a light and heat source, maybe a candle, and run your paper over it to easily reveal the message.
3: LIQUID LAYERING EXPERIMENTS
Some liquids have higher densities than others, which you’ll see here. Use an empty bottle, a measuring cup, dark corn syrup, dish soap, water, vegetable oil, rubbing alcohol, and food coloring to mix with alcohol. Measure how much your bottle can hold by ounces or millimeters and divide by five; because we have five liquids. Then pour each one and carefully into the bottle in the way we list it. So corn syrup first and alcohol last.
4: WATER BENDING EXPERIMENTS
For this experiment, you need running water either from the tap or having a bottle of water with a hole in it. Either way, just have the water running gently. Next, you can either use a PVC type in a towel or just run a comb through your hair. We’re trying to get a static charge here. Then play around with your pipe or comb near the running water. And you can control which way the direction pore. It’s really awesome to watch.
5: OPTICAL ILLUSION
This experiment tests your drawing skills. First, draw out two separate drawings that could go together if drawn on the same page, for example, a fish in a bowl. Then cut out both drawings on two separate pieces of paper and tape them around a pencil. Suppose you spin the pencil fast enough. They’ll look as if the fish are in the bowl. This happens because your eye can only see images at a certain speed.
In a cup, mix three parts of water in one part dish soap. Then, use something to make a bubble-like wand, or maybe you can use your hand to make a circle with your fingers. Then blow your bubble over your hand with the Contin gloves on. Your a bubble bender now ready.
7: FIRE BENDING EXPERIMENTS
Hand sanitizers pretty flammable and just by lighting it. It may cause a fire. But it’s actually reasonably safe to grab and hold, just not for too long, of course, and keep your hands in motion in to help. Again, as a side note, please, if you try this to make sure you have parental guidance and you’re safe about it.
8: GLASS CANDY
here’s how to make a delicious peppermint candy. You need a baking spray, 2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup of corn syrup, 1/2 cup of water, and 2 tablespoons of peppermint extract. But really, you can use any clear extract you like.
Cover up a tray and aluminum foil. Then, fill a heated pot with your sugar corn syrup and water until it’s all liquefied at around 2 to 85 degrees. Also, make sure no sugars on the side of the pot for the best results. Once boiled, add your peppermint extract, drop a food coloring, and stir until you get a nice color. Finally, add the baking spray to your aluminum sheet, pour your concoction, and then let it sit for about 30 minutes to harden. Break it however you wish
9: FIRE SNAKE EXPERIMENTS
First, mix 10 grams of baking soda 240 grams of sugar in a bowl. Fill it with sand and pour lighter fluid into it. Pour the baking soda and sugar mix over it and light it up however you can. It’s wild, and it just keeps growing.
10: NOODLE ROCKET
First, you need a small mason jar and poke a hole into the lid, that’s about the size of the hole in your noodle. not the entire noodle, just the hole of it. And the small jar, fill about a quarter of it with hydrogen peroxide and half a teaspoon with dry yeast. And try to tighten the lid by pressing on it. Shake it up to get the reaction started, place your noodle on the top, and light it up. Now you have a miniature rocket engine.
11: TURN WATER INTO WINE
You need the same size two glasses, wine, water, and something thin like a card or plastic layer for this experiment. Fill both glasses at the top, one with water when one with wine. Then place your card over the glass of water. Apply pressure to get a little vacuum seal and put the glass of water above the wine. Then gently pull the card until there’s a small enough gap for the liquid to seep out. Eventually, the wine will fully replace the water.
12: WALKING ON EGGS
Layout cartons of eggs you wish in the path that you can walk on. But make sure they aren’t cracked. Then go ahead and walk on them. This is possible because it’s very difficult to crack an egg on its edges and having a lot of them also helps. It can also help to distribute your weight more. The cartons also play a part.
13: CRYSTAL BALL
You first mixed about three parts water to one part dish soap to make a bubble solution. Then in a bowl, pour enough warm water to get an inch of height. Use a heavy-duty glove. Place two to three pieces of dry ice into the bowl of water. Then dip your fingers into the bubble solution wrapping it around the rim of your bowl to make sure not to let any fall in.
Next, run a piece of long cotton fabric into a bubble solution and run your fingers through it to remove any excess solution. Finally, run the cloth across the bowl to create the thin bubble layer. Then the dry ice will cause the bowl to grow and look like a beautiful crystal ball.
14: EXPLODING LUNCH BAG
Start by filling up a Ziploc bag with half a cup of warm water and half a cup with vinegar. Then add some baking soda to a tissue. Make sure to wrap it up. So none of it gets out of the bag right away. While holding your tissue, seal the bag up nice and tight. And let the tissue drop. Boom!
15: IT CAN WALK
This is another trick that you can do with static electricity. Rub a balloon on your hair or a towel. Then you can manipulate a can into rolling whichever way you want.
16: RAINBOW PAPER
For this experiment, we’II need a piece of black paper in a room with decent lighting. Drop it on a container filled with water and use an eyedropper or something to pour in drops of clear fingernail polish slowly. Once, the nail polish has dried after a few minutes. Pull out your paper and remove any water. Set it down on somewhere like a newspaper to let the whole thing dry.
17: SUCK AN EGG
For this experiment, you need a flask, glass, or container that’s thinner than the egg at the top. Make sure your egg is hard-boiled. Then, put a piece of paper on fire and place it into your container. Place the egg onto the neck of your container and watch what happens. If you want the egg to come out again, just blow some air into it.
18: LAVA LAMP
First, you should fill a glass with one cup of water with Colerain. Then add three cups of oil into the glass gently so that it doesn’t mix. Let it settle, then drop in either an effervescence tablet or Alka-Seltzer.
19: INVISIBLE BOTTLE
You need a glass, a smaller bottle, and glycerin to do this experiment. Fill the glass with a reasonable amount of glycerin, then pour the rest into a bottle until it’s close to the same height. Very carefully place the bottle end of the glass and boom. You can’t see it anymore. This is because glycerin refracts or bends light making it very difficult to see the bottle.
20: LEMON VOLCANO
First, you should cut a lemon in half, and 1/2 drip any desired food colorings onto the lemon and mix it in. Then add a spoon of baking soda and mix that in as well. For a more robust reaction, squeeze the other piece of lemon over it.
21: GUM WRAPPER FIRE STARTER EXPERIMENTS
This is an excellent way if you’ve ever had a bad situation, need a quickfire. You’ll need a battery and foil gum wrapper, and gloves for safety. To get the best out of the wrapper, cut it lengthwise in thirds. Then cut your wrapper into an hourglass shape but not too thick where nothing will happen or too thin where it’ll burn away. Then place a foil part below the battery and on top of it and last long enough to get what fire is going if you need to.
22: FIREWORKS IN A JAR EXPERIMENTS
You need a glass filled with 3/4 of the way with warm water. Then mix enough oil to fill in a separate container with colors that are different with food coloring. Pour it into a glass of water. now watch the magic happen
23: CHANGE THE COLOR OF YOUR FLOWERS
Mix some food coloring and water. Pour it into the flower vase. Within a few hours, you’ll begin to notice a beautiful change in color.
24: INSTANT ICE
Take a water bottle and put it in your freezer for about two hours and forty-five minutes. Just before it freezes into ice (times can vary though for different freezers). At this point, the water’s well below freezing. It just needs a little bit of help. So with a nice tap and there you have it. You can also gently pour it into a glass and drop a piece of ice into it with the same results.
