These four amazing @home science experiments will blow everybody’s mind

Science is obviously fun to read about right? Because why would you otherwise like a science page – Like Duh. But what probably is even more fun, doing science experiments at home. So here are four simple but amazing science experiments you can do at home.

1. Freeze water on command

Ever wanted to freeze water in just seconds, all it takes is a quick knock or ice cube to instantly freeze the water in front of your eyes. To learn how, just click here.

2. Create Fluorescein

Fluorescein is a non-toxic powder that can be found in just ordinary highlighter pens, but when this powder comes into contact with water is creates an enchanting fluorescent green colour. And did you know that NASA is using the same chemical to find shuttles that land in the sea.

3. Make a Rocket engine with pasta

Pasta can be very delicious, but as it turns out it can also make rocket science surprisingly easy. Rocket engines use a combination of a solid fuel source (like pasta) and a liquid oxidizer(mouthwash and yeast) to propel themselves into the air.

To create your own pasta rocket just follow this link.

4. Turn glass invisible

We all know that when light passes from one object to another it changes speed and direction – the so-called refraction. An object can only be visible if it reflects light, but when two substances with the same reflective properties come into contact one disappears.

Create your electricity by making a homemade battery using salt water

This project is very easy to do! What you need are an aluminium can, a thin copper plate, two spacers of rubber, a motor of 2-3 volts e.g. CD ROM motor, 1 litre of water with 2-3 tablespoons of salt.

The duration of the time of rotation of the motor is over 7 minutes. When the battery runs out  you can reof its charge shall be filled again with water and salt. To secure the success of this experiment, it is necessary to have a motor with a low power consumption 15-20 mA max. and a voltage of 2-3 volts. It is not recommended to use these motors in toys.

How to Make a Matchbox Microphone

Make a microphone out of a matchbox and pencil leads. Listen to sounds and music from the other side of the house using this DIY microphone. Simple audio electronics project. You will also need a battery, some wires and clips, and a pair of headphones or a speaker. Fun and simple science experiment, and great to do with children.
