Hunkin's Experiments (over 200 home experiments)

Video Stories QUEST TV – Back to the Wild: Wolves, Seeds and Snapshots Track wolves from their prey’s POV, explore seed diversity, and see the Great Plains from a new angle. Also, tag along with a scientist encouraging native bees to pollinate crops. Continue Reading 100 Awesome Engineering Projects for Kids By Kristie Lewis Engineering and fun aren't always two things that kids naturally associate with one another, but there are hundreds of ways to make engineering, physics and design fun and challenging for kids. Here are 100 great experiments that will let kids construct, play, learn and grow, all while they study the fundamentals of engineering. Basics These projects focus on the basics of motion, force and other essentials of physics.

5 Fun Science Experiments for Kids Everyone knows science is awesome, but did you know you can do science right in your own kitchen? Ok, maybe you did, but if you're not sure where to start, we've got five really fun experiments that demonstrate the scientific principles of buoyancy, surface tension, density, chemical reaction and non-Newtonian fluid. Best of all, families can do these easy experiments with common, household items. 15 Awesome Chemistry Experiments You don’t need to watch Breaking Bad to know that chemistry is pretty awesome. Below we explore our favorite 15 chemistry GIFs. Melting Metal With Magnets The Science: The copper wire has a significant amount of AC electricity running through it, causing it to act like a really strong electromagnet. In the metal slug, eddy currents form due to the magnetic field the copper wire is causing while the copper wire has high frequency AC flowing through it.

Apple Science Experiment Fall is here and apples are everywhere! We have been having fun with apple books and crafts and decided to do a little apple experimenting too. The kids love acid and base reactions, but this time instead of combining them we observed to see what effects they would have on apples.

Practical Physics This website is for teachers of physics in schools and colleges. It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of physical concepts and processes. Some of the experiments can be used as starting-points for investigations or for enhancement activities. Junior Science & Humanities Symposium March 6-8, 2014 Hosted by: The University of Nevada Reno Lodging will be at: Circus Circus Reno Hotel, 500 North Sierra Street Reno, NV 1-800-992-2694 Activities will be provided by: The University of Nevada Reno, The Nevada Mining Association, and The Desert Research Institute 20 great outdoor science experiments When I asked parents what puts them off doing science experiments at home one of the reasons was the mess, which after many a gloop covered kitchen floor I can definitely empathise with. So today, I’m sharing fun outdoor science experiments, making it much easier to clean up afterwards. This one is messy wherever you do it, but we loved making these splatter patterns so much I had to include them. If you don’t want to use paint, you could just use water. You’ll need LOTS of space for this super fast bottle rocket.
