Science for Saturdays

Check out these great kid-friendly science projects that you can complete all within your humble abode! Let's talk science!

Elephant Toothpaste - Making elephant toothpaste is an easy and fun science experiment that you can do with your kids at home or with students in the lab. It is the result of a chemical reaction that creates a large amount of oozing foam that looks like toothpaste squirting out of a bottle (enough toothpaste for an elephant...)!

Hot Ice Make some hot ice in this nifty experiment using everyday household objects! In this activity, you will be observing crystallization of sodium acetate. 

Homemade Ice Cream Now that the weather is warming up a nice cold treat to have is ice cream! But what if you don’t have ice cream at home? Do you have to wait for the weekly shopping trip to the supermarket? Maybe not! If you have these ingredients at home, you can make your own ice cream!
