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. Related:  EXPERIMENTSExpériences "Effet Wahou" - comment aller plus loin ?

Fun science experiments and project ideas for kids - educational, exciting and safe 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! What you need 2 cupsa long string (be sure to use cotton twine or strings that can absorb water. Regency Natural Cooking Twine Quality Park White Cotton 10-Ply Medium String OXO Good Grips 100-Percent Natural Cotton Twine Steps Tape one end of the string to the inside bottom of a cup.Fill the other cup with water (and food coloring if you want) and put the free end of the string in the water (not taped).Lift the cup with water up above the other, but not directly over it. Why This traveling water experiment has demonstrated two important properties of water. Cohesion: Water molecules are attracted to one another and so they tend to stick together. Want to see a demonstration?

Grant Thompson - "The King of Random" Call it "Mad Science", or just a "Quest for Discovery". These are some of my experiments, and "Random Weekend Projects" Subscribe! New videos every week! WARNING: In many cases, these projects are dangerous and pose risks of personal, or property damage, injury, and in some cases, death. There are some mind-blowing loopholes in this version of life, that for some reason, haven't been issued a patch. I make weekly videos dedicated to exploring life through all kinds of projects, experiments, and real-world life-hacking. Every project is a completely different adventure, and occasionally you'll see an experiment that probably shouldn't be duplicated at all.

Google 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! Each file lists an expected age-level to carry out the experiment, as well as safety precautions. If you think you have an experiment worthy of the archive, feel free to fill out the online experiment acquisition form. -Cathode Man Ray.

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? Warning: adult supervision is required whenever you do things involving fire. What you need a plastic bottlea balloonscissorspacking tapeincense (this lavender incense is very nice!) Steps Cut out the bottom of the bottle. Propelling Game To play, pull out the knot and release it quickly to shoot air at small balls of tissue paper. Smoke Ring To make a smoke ring, light an incense and blow out the fire (since we only want the smoke).Carefully insert the incense into the bottle but do not let go. Why How does the air move? The smoke ring you see is a vortex. A vortex is a spinning donut of air. At the same time, this outcoming vortex is traveling faster than the outside air and therefore has a lower pressure (as depicted by Bernoulli’s principle). Source: Telus World Of 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 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.

Pile avec des pommes de terre De Wikidebrouillard. Présentation de l'expérience Peut-on produire de l'électricité avec des pommes de terre ? Cette expérience montre comment il est possible de transformer des pommes de terre, mais aussi d'autres aliments, en piles électriques utilisables dans un circuit simple. Matériel 7 pommes de terre 7 pièces en cuivre (Cu) Attention : selon les pièces utilisées, il arrive que l'expérience ne fonctionne pas. L'expérience En vidéo La manipulation Nettoyer les pièces de cuivre et les clous en zinc. Que voit-on ? La diode s'allume dès qu'on la connecte à la pile-patate. Petites variantes Ça marche aussi avec d'autres fruits.. Jean-Luc Morisse explique le fonctionnement d'une pile fabriquée avec deux oranges. Explications De manière simple Chaque pomme de terre se comporte comme une petite pile : au contact du zinc et du cuivre, elle produit un faible courant électrique. Le cuivre représente la borne + de la pile. Allons plus loin dans l'explication Questions sans réponses Autres expériences

NOVA PBS Join the scientists who saw Zika coming as they trace the origins of this devastating virus. In 2016, panic spread through the Americas as a once obscure virus—Zika—reached epidemic proportions. To the surprise of the medical community and the public alike, the little known virus was discovered to cause severe birth defects in children born to infected mothers. But where did this virus come from?
