Walking Water Science Experiment
This experiment is simple to set up and only requires items that you probably already have in your home/school.
Step 1 – Position your two empty glasses about 2 inches apart. Pour water into one of the glasses until it is halfway full
Step 2 – Add a few drops of color into the water
Step 3 – Stir the food coloring until the water is all one color.
Step 4 – Grab a strip of paper towel that is about 1 to 2 inches wide.
Step 5 – Place one end of the paper towel into the glass with the water as shown in photo. Then place the other end into the glass that is empty. Then leave the glasses sit about an hour.
Step 6 – observe what has happened.
How Does the Walking Water Science Experiment Work?
The water appears to defy gravity, but it in reality it moves because of a process called capillary action. The adhesive forces between the water and the paper towel are stronger than the cohesive forces inside the water. As a result, the water travels up and across the paper towel out of one glass and into another.
Liquid food coloring
Shampoo or liquid soap
Step 1 –Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and mix
Step 2 – Add ¾ cup of water ,2 Teaspoon shampoo and stir
Step 3 – Continue mixing until you have a smooth dough-like consistency
Step 4 - Add a little oil and knead.
Step 5 - Enjoy!!!!
INTRODUCTION: Anyone can stack blocks, boxes, or books.What if you could stack different liquids in different layers? Think of it as a science magic!
Highly concentrated sugar syrup
Measure 5ml of each type of liquid into the different cups. You may want to color each of the liquids to make a more dramatic effect in your column . Start your column by pouring the highly concentrated sugar syrup into the cylinder. Now, you will pour each liquid SLOWLY into the container, one at a time. It is very important to pour the liquids slowly and into the center of the cylinder. Make sure that the liquids do not touch the sides of the cylinder while you are pouring. Make sure you pour the liquids in the following order:Highly concentrated sugar syrup,Sugar syrup, Water Vegetable oil the liquids will layer on top of one another. After you pour in the liquids you will have layers
HOW DOES IT WORK? The same amount of two different liquids will have different weights because they have different masses. The liquids that weigh more (have a higher density) will sink below the liquids that weigh less (have a lower density).
INTRODUCTION:Inflating a balloon with yeast is a wonderful experiment because all of the materials are nontoxic. It’s nice when the kids can help measure out ingredients without worrying about what they are touching.
Mix all the ingredients and then used a funnel to pour the mixture into the bottle.Then add a little bit more water to help the yeast mixture get through the neck of the funnel.Then quickly stretched a balloon over the mouth of the bottle.Observe !!!!Almost immediately, we observed bubbles in the yeast mixture.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
As the yeast continued to react, it converted more and more sugar into carbon dioxide gas.This gas was trapped in the balloon, making it inflate as if by magic!It took about more than an hour for our balloon to reach its maximum size.
