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. All the materials used in our activities are very affordable and accessible to every child across the globe, developing or developed countries alike. 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.

Edible/Inedible Experiments Archive Science should be fun.. science should be edible.. Try your hand at experimental science! Some experiments may be eaten before, during or after the experiment, and some should not be eaten at all! La ligne d'eau Have you seen traveling water, i.e. water traveling from one cup to another without being close together or one directly above the other. It can be easily done with the help of a string! In this experiment, you will find out that water doesn’t just flow in river. It can flow on a string, too. It’s not magic. It’s science! 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

Le canon à air "rond de fumée" Playing with an air canon is always fun. You can use it to propel little tissue balls or have a race to see who can make the balls fly the farthest. But did you know that you can also make a smoke ring with it? Petits automates Daily challenges are a fun way of stretching your creativity. Years ago I worked on the National Novel Writing Month challenge and I’ve done a drawing a day for a month before. This time I joined the makevember challenge after I read about it on the Make Magazine Blog and made 29 automata in a month. 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.

Science Fair Ideas Video for Kids - Be captivated watching the excellent selected and really easy to understand Science Fair Ideas facts for kids video: This is a great video that shows fun experiments you can do that is about exothermic reactions. With this video, you will be able to see the “hot ice” experiment, which turns water into ice with just a touch of a finger. You will find a list of the materials needed for this project in the video. The video will show the step by step tutorial on how to make this project and demonstrates different kinds of experiments that show the same principle.

Comment créer un livre 3D! An anaglyph is made of two superimposed images, but a little offset, consisting of red (most often found on the left) and cyan (most often found on the right). The space between the 2 images (also called parallax) is not the same everywhere, is not constant. To create the relief effect, we must use red and cyan (mix between green and blue) filters like the anaglyph's colors. The eye with the red filter will not filter the red image but will block the blue one.

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. 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.

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).
