Science Snacks: Projects and Activities You Can Do!

Science Snacks: Projects and Activities You Can Do!

Arvind Gupta Our core belief is that children learn by doing - by touching, feeling, cutting, sticking -- pulling things apart, putting things together. We believe that this hands-on science helps them relate to curriculum and get conceptual understanding. We believe this will revolutionize the way children learn. A child lighting up a LED with a Syringe Generator is more likely to light up his village tomorrow. Our approach is inclusive. Ours is the most cost effective outreach program in the world, with cost of 15 paisa per person (0.2 cents per person). Our Goal We want to design science and math activities to comprehensively cover the whole curriculum.

Physik für Kids - Links und Co Hallo! Ich habe hier ein Paar interessante Links für dich an Land gezogen. Ich hoffe du hast deinen Spaß beim Ausprobieren.

Christmas star › Tricks (ABC Science) The Surfing Scientist › Tricks Celebrate the Yuletide with this classic trick. Five wooden toothpicks, a straw and some water are all you need to be the Christmas dinner science star. By Ruben Meerman Can't see the video? ^ to top What's going on? Wood is amazing stuff. All wood is about 50 per cent carbon by dry weight, 44 per cent oxygen and just 6 per cent hydrogen. The missing mass turns back into carbon dioxide and water. Freshly cut wood contains lots of liquid water which the tree was hoping to use to make more wood before someone came along with a chainsaw. When dry wood gets wet again, it swells a little. When you squeeze a drop of water onto the broken toothpicks, the wood gets wet and swells causing the 'hinges' to straighten back out again. Tags: physics Published 16 December 2014 Who is the Surfing Scientist? Despite being as 'Aussie as', Ruben Meerman was actually born in Holland. He decided to study physics at school in an attempt to sit next to a hot girl.

Healthy Kids : Healthy Kids Activities Think a vegetable can’t teach you anything? Well think again! Try these cool experiments and activities and see what you learn! Colourful celery experiment Place a celery stalk in a clear container. Fill it up three-quarters full with brightly coloured water (just add some food colouring). Try the experiment with other plants – maybe one with a white flower. Plants draw the water up their stem and send it on to their leaves and petals. Like the celery, your body is mostly water. Salty potato experiment Cut a potato in half. Like the potato, salty food and drinks make people thirsty. Vegetable person drawing Draw your own ‘vegetable person’ using real vegetables, photos of vegetables or a combination of both. The picture of Vegieman may give you some ideas. It’s good to eat a variety of vegetables over the week. Traffic light fruit kebabs To make traffic light fruit kebabs, you’ll need: Cut the fruit into bite-size chunks or balls. The kebabs are now ready to eat and enjoy.

Make a Liquid Layers Density Column When you see liquids stack on top of each other in layers, it's because they have different densities from each other and don't mix well together. You can make a density column—also known as a density tower—with many liquid layers using common household liquids. This is an easy, fun and colorful science project that illustrates the concept of density. Density Column Materials You can use some or all of these liquids, depending on how many layers you want and which materials you have handy. These liquids are listed from most-dense to least-dense, so this is the order you pour them into the column: HoneyCorn syrup or pancake syrupLiquid dishwashing soapWater (can be colored with food coloring)Vegetable oilRubbing alcohol (can be colored with food coloring)Lamp oil Make the Density Column Pour your heaviest liquid into the center of whatever container you are using to make your column. Carefully pour the next liquid you are using down the side of the container. How the Density Tower Works

How to Make a Cloud in a Bottle - Science Demonstration Here's a quick and easy science project you can do: make a cloud inside a bottle. Clouds form when water vapor forms tiny visible droplets. This results from cooling the vapor. It helps to provide particles around which the water can liquefy. In this project, we'll use smoke to help form a cloud. Cloud in a Bottle Materials 1-liter bottlewarm watermatch Let's Make Clouds Pour just enough warm water in the bottle to cover the bottom of the container.Light the match and place the match head inside the bottle.Allow the bottle to fill with smoke.Cap the bottle.Squeeze the bottle really hard a few times. The Other Way to Do It You can also apply the ideal gas law to make a cloud in a bottle: PV = nRT, where P is pressure, V is volume, n is number of moles, R is a constant, and T is temperature. Instant cloud! How Clouds Form Molecules of water vapor will bounce around like molecules of other gases unless you give them a reason to stick together.

How Do You Prove Air Has Volume (Takes Up Space)? Air, and how it behaves and moves, is important to understanding the basic processes that lead to weather. But because air (and the atmosphere) is invisible, it can be hard to think of it as having properties like mass, volume, and pressure -- or even being there at all! These simple activities and demos will help you prove that air indeed has volume (takes up space). Difficulty: Easy Time Required: Under 5 minutes Activity 1 - Underwater Air Bubbles Materials: A small (5-gallon) fish tank or other large containerA juice or shot glassTap water Procedure: Fill the tank or large container about 2/3 full of water. Activity 2 - Air Balloons a deflated balloona 1-liter soda bottle (with its label removed) Lower the deflated balloon into the neck of the bottle. Another very simple way to demonstrate that air takes up space? Take a balloon or brown paper lunch bag. Project Takeaways: Air is made up of a variety of gases.
