A simple tweak can turn an ordinary erupting volcano experiment into a fun multicoloured volcano! Let kids make their own volcano from scratch to extend the activity further.

Spread baking soda across a tray (we used a cookie sheet). Pour drops of food coloring and soap around the tray. Don’t worry about mixing it up. Let your child squirt lemon juice drops onto the baking soda. The bottled kind of lemon juice works well for this. The citric acid of the lemon juice will react with the baking soda creating carbon dioxide. The soap will trap the gas causing more fizz! Playdough Volcano Upside Down Reflection – All you need is a kitchen spoon to learn about the principles of reflection.Lifesaver Sparks | Okay, be honest… Have you ever tried this experiment? I really like this version because it is so much better on the teeth but just as much fun! This entire YouTube channel is filled with science demonstrations – some of which viewers can try out – and the host is working to encourage others to share his love of science.

Similar to erupting soap, exploding peep geysers also need a microwave. We love a little twist with ghost peeps, and it would make this experiment perfect for trying around Halloween. If you don’t have peeps where you are, an ordinary marshmallow will work just as well. Erupting baking soda volcano The source of the energy for this reaction could be discussed, with a suitable group, in terms of the breaking and making of bonds. A cookie set by YouTube to measure bandwidth that determines whether the user gets the new or old player interface. The only problem? So many experiments require obscure ingredients that are hard to find or require planning. What will happen when you combine baking soda and vinegar into a bottle sealed with a balloon? Will it explode, inflate or stay the same? Possibly not much exploding going on but this is one fun science experiment that kids will love. Head over to Little Bins For Little Hands to find out more. 3. Ivory Soap ExperimentFor example, a distillation of diazomethane can be risky due to its explosive tendencies in bright light or when exposed to sharp/rough edges and scratched glassware. It is also highly toxic. Trimethylsilyldiazomethane (CAS 18107-18-1) is a convenient and safer substitute. Then, mix 1/2 tablespoon of borax and 1/2 a cup of water and stir it around until the borax dissolves. I First, wrap your rubber bands of different sizes around the cup so that the rubber bands act as strings over the hole of the cup. Then, pinch the sides of them together as best you can and tap them around the sides of the cup. See what sounds they make, and experiments with rubber bands of various sizes to see what sounds they make! Describe the effect of changes in temperature, concentration, pressure, and surface area on rate of reaction. Next, fill a glass with water. Slowly lower the piece of paper behind the glass of water. Look through the glass of water, and watch in amazement!

Never perform potentially explosive experiments when alone in the lab. Inform your lab mates before starting the experiment. Get ready for a foamy explosion with the Microwave Ivory Soap experiment! Students should definitely try this exciting and hands-on activity.

Elephant Toothpaste

Cornflour – as an alternative to cornflour, other similar, oxidisable, fine powders can be used, eg custard powder, icing sugar or lycopodium powder. (Note: lycopodium powder is a form of pollen, which may cause sensitisation or hay fever-like symptoms in susceptible individuals. If the demonstration works well, very little lycopdium powder should enter the air in the room.) The powder usually needs to be dried in an oven at about 80°C. Ivory soap contains small air bubbles that expand when heated in the microwave. The soap is in a solid state, so when it expands, it stays in its expanded size for the most part. In this experiment, students observe what happens when cornflour is sprayed into the flame of a candle burning inside a large tin can with the lid on. The resulting small explosion caused by rapid combustion of the cornflour blows the lid off the tin.

Firework explosions are caused by the burning of flammable materials that create very large amounts of hot gas that expand very rapidly. However, not all explosions are caused by the burning of flammable materials. Explosions can also occur through a sudden release of energy caused by a chemical reaction. Fizzing Science can be some of the most fun because it is simple and easy to do, but the “magic” of the fizz never seems to bore anyone, even me! These experiments are all great chemistry examples that I am sure your kids will have so much fun with. I know mine did! Have students compare their results to the one demonstrated. Did any students have a similar or different type of launch? The process of using your sense of touch is very important to the scientific method. In this experiment, you’ll use your sense of touch to see how many different textures you can recognize.

First, separate the orange into sections. Then, dip a slice into the baking soda. Finally, take a bite. It will start to bubble in your mouth! When the aluminum foil is smooth, light reflect off of in in straight lines, which enables you to see your reflection. But once you crumple the foil, it has a wrinkled surface that sends your reflection in all different direction, causing it to disappear. First, mix 1/4 cup of water and 1/4 cup of white school glue in a bowl. (Double the recipe if you’d like more.) If your child is a fan of the Horrible Science books, they will love this Horrible Science Explosive Experiments kit.
