Freeze & Free - Preschool Science Experiment Have I mentioned we are getting super excited for our upcoming trip to Disneyland? Well we are. I am not sure who is more excited me or the kids but one thing is for sure is that we are using this excitement to drive our activities. This preschool science experiment was also driven by a fun day at school. I work upstairs in then 2-3 class while my daughter is downstairs in PreK and last week the older kids were melting ice to free objects under the ice. She had so much fun I decided to adopt the idea for even more fun at home the next day.

Agreeable Sheep - Får som rör sig Add to Cart to download this kit for free ! A picture is worth a thousand words. Moving pictures must be worth at least twice that. To that end, I'm creating a YouTube video explaining the best techniques for making paper toys from printing and aligning to scoring and cutting. The Agreeable Sheep seemed like the perfect subject for such a video but just needed a few small changes. And so, for your cutting and sticking pleasure, I present here, a slightly updated version for you to follow along with at home. These amazing liquid tricks make you question the secret power of water The Youtube illusionist Brusspup doesn't just show you these illusions, he also explains how you can perform them yourself with just ordinary kitchenware. There is just so much you can do with just water and other liquids. From making bottles disappear with glycerin to starting fires with water, or creating a Leidenfrost effect in just an ordinary frying pan. Brusspup, an extraordinary Youtube illusionist, is taking it to the next level by showing us 10 fun things you can do with liquids. Making liquids dance like crazy
Ice Tray Battery - Kids' Science Wrap a nail with a piece of copper wire, leaving a section of wire extending from below the head of the nail. Repeat Step 1 with the remaining 4 nails and 4 pieces of copper wire. Fill 6 wells of an ice tray with distilled white vinegar. Create a circuit by inserting each nail into a well of vinegar while placing the extended wire into the next well. Place one “leg” of an LED light into the well with only a copper wire inside it and place the other LED “leg” into the well with only a nail in it.
Edible Slime or Gak (Chemical and Borax Free!) One of the things I love to do with this blog is to use my science background (I have an M. Ed in science education and used to be a middle and high school science teacher) to create new play recipes that are safe - and if possible, that are edible (I love the idea of creating sensory play that is great for all ages so that babies and toddlers can join their siblings in play without having to miss out on the fun). So far I've developed a Safe/Edible Glow Water, and Edible Mini Water Beads (with no choking hazard!) science for hobbyist, students, and teachers of all ages. Q: How much water do you put in a water rocket? A: The simple answer is something less than half full. Since the compressed air stores the energy, and the water provides momentum, both are needed.
Algodoo, a great physics education program! « Scientix blog Image: Shutterstock/Kletr Algodoo is a 2D physics engine for iPads and computers. It´s created by a Swede named Emil Ernerfeldt. With Algodoo you can let your creativity flow! When I first saw Algodoo a couple of years ago it looked promising and useful but I didn´t really understand how to get started in the first place.
