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.

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.
