  • Launch your own horizontal rocket with the power of air pressure

    The human fascination with space travel has existed for many centuries and in 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human being to set foot on the moon! It takes a lot of energy to break through the earth's gravitational...

  • Find out how a simple siphon works

    Even though air is light, there is so much of it that air can exert huge pressure at ground level. Air pushes in all directions at ground level with a force of over 1 kg per sq cm. The...

  • Use sound waves to make beautiful patterns on a wall

    Have you ever seen an electronics engineer or a technician working with an 'oscilloscope'? An 'oscilloscope' is a device that creates different kinds of curves, waves and lines on a screen according to the type of electrical signals being...

  • Study how sound vibrations can transfer from one wine glass to another

    Resonance is simply another word for vibration. When you tap a wine glass, it makes a sound at a particular pitch, like a chime. It is 'resonating' at that pitch which has a particular frequency, for example 400 beats...

  • Make your own guitar out of an ordinary shoebox

    Whether you're a musician or you simply enjoy listening to music, have you ever stopped to think about how a guitar works? What does the big hole in the front do? In this science experiment, we will explore exactly...

  • Make your own electrical light bulb

    When electrical current is passed through the filament, the resistance builds up so much heat that it starts to emit light. In this science experiment, build your own light bulb and test various filaments to see which works best.

  • Make an Eddy-current motor

    When current is induced in such a conductor, the induced current often flows in small circles that resemble eddies in a stream. These electrical currents were named eddy currents. In the following science experiment, we you can demonstrate how...

  • Build a device that can detect a small amount of magnetism

    The strength of the new magnet is determined by how many times it is stroked with the permanent magnet, and if a nail is only stroked a few times with a permanent magnet, it will only have a very...

  • Compare current induction using a south vs. a north pole of a magnet

    Electrical current can only flow when there is a difference in electrical potential, not when they are alike. Observe what happens when electrical current is induced with the south and the north pole of a magnet respectively in this...

  • Test and compare electrical insulators opposed to magnetic insulators

    A magnetic insulator shield magnetic fields, and do not let magnetism affect objects on the other side of the material. Is the same materials both good electrical insulators and magnetic insulators? Compare both the electrical and magnetic insulating ability...
