Did you know you can make a compass out of a needle? It’s a simple STEM experiment and a great way to introduce the concepts of magnetism, magnetic poles, and the Earth’s magnetic field. Find everything you need to for this easy experiment and include a scientific explanation of “why it works” to help your students explore the details of the concepts.
What if I told you that you could poke a hole in a cup, pour water into the cup, and the water would not leak out? It doesn’t seem possible, does it? In this easy science experiment, we’re going to use science and gravity to show us that it is possible and tell you why!
Did you know that you can get paper clips to stick together to form a chain? This STEM experiment only takes about 5 minutes to pull together and it’s perfect for toddlers through elementary age children. The result will definitely capture their attention and it’s a great way to explore magnet transference.
In this super simple science experiment, kids can build their own rainbow in a jar while exploring density, mass, and volume. Watch our demonstration video, gather your supplies, and print out our detailed instructions to get started. An easy to understand explanation of how it works is included!
Let’s go ice fishing! It doesn’t seem possible to pick up ice with only an untied string, but it is. As long as you have the special ingredient! This quick 3-minute science experiment uses only a handful of kitchen items and helps kids explore the freezing temperatures of freshwater versus saltwater.
Can you make an egg float in water? In this simple science experiment, we take just a few minutes to test the laws of density and discover just how easy it is to make make an egg float! We have detailed instructions, a demo video as well as the scientific explanation of “why it works.”
Can heat cause movement? With a few drops of food coloring, cooking oil, and a candle you can find out! In this simple yet exciting science experiment, kids can explore the concepts of density and convection as they watch convection currents in motion! A demonstration video, printable instructions, and a supplies list are included!
Can you pour water out of one container and into another? Of course you can! But can you do it when the containers are a foot apart? In this easy science experiment, we are going to use a little science “magic” to explore cohesion, adhesion, and hydrogen bonding while having fun. Watch our demonstration video, print out our instruction sheet, and gather your materials to get started. A simple scientific explanation of how the experiment works is included.
Have you ever heard the saying, “Oil and water don’t mix”? For this easy science experiment, we observe exactly what does happens when we mix oil and water, then we’ll add another item to the mix to see how it changes! With only a few common kitchen items, kids can explore density and the reaction of adding an emulsifier (dish soap) to the experiment.
Your kids will be thrilled with the fun chemical reaction of this super simple science experiment. With only a few common items that you probably already have at home, kids can see the quick and impressive results of the chemical reaction, feel the heat released from the process, and even play with the “elephant toothpaste” foam afterward.
Can you blow up a balloon without using your mouth? In this simple science experiment, we show you how to do it with only a few everyday items you probably already own. Great for young children! #scienceexperiments #scienceforkids #STEM #chemicalreaction #coolscienceexperimentshq
Can you see thermal energy? Yes, with just a few common kitchen items! Although we can explain that molecules move faster when hot and slower when cold, in this science experiment kids will be able to see thermal energy in action and explore the concept hands-on. #thermalenergy #scienceexperiments #sciencesforkids #STEM #waterfun #coolscienceexperimentshq
A fun science experiment and music lesson all in one! This easy experiment allows kids to learn and make noise (music) in the process. Kids can explore and investigate sound waves, pitch, and more as they create their own simple musical instrument. Watch our demonstration video below then print out our materials list and instruction sheet to get started. An easy to understand explanation of how the experiment works is included. #scienceforkids #scienceexperiments #stem #soundwaves #pitch
Watch out, our science volcano is about to erupt! This cool science experiment creates a fun visual and demonstrates the scientific fact that hot water rises and cold water sinks. Continue the science fun with an introduction to the concept of hydrothermal vents. #scienceforkids #scienceexperiments #stem #underwatervolcano
