Ever wondered if learning is all work and no fun? Don’t know about you but I certainly did. But spoiler alert, it doesn’t have to be. We have a list of 5 science experiments that can be done at home which will make learning easy and fun. If you are far away from science career-wise, still take a look and explore experiments to make science easy for your little ones.
1. Chromatography Flowers
Chromatography is the process of separating a solution into different parts and can be understood by creating aesthetic flowers. Simply draw stripes on a coffee filter, fold, and dip in the water. You will see the water travel up the filter and separate the marker ink into its different pigments.
2.Gravity-Defying Paper Clips
This experiment is like killing two birds with one arrow. Gravitation and magnetic pull can be easily learned by hanging paper clips from a ruler with a string. Just put a magnet on to the top of the ruler(more than string length) and capture the effect of magnets on gravitation.
3. Pencils Piercing through Water
Learn about dreadful chemistry in a fun way by piercing a bag of water with a sharpened pencil. The amazing part is that the polymers of the bag’s plastic will re-seal around the pencil and the water would not leak out.
4. Self-Inflating Balloon
Put baking soda in an empty bottle and vinegar in a balloon and attach the balloon over the mouth of the bottle. When vinegar pours in, the gas produced will inflate the balloon on its own. Who knew learning chemistry could be used for party preparations!
5. Tea Bag Rocket
Make a hot air balloon at home using an empty tea bag, by simply lighting a match stick below it. You will find the empty bag rising due to the pressure of the hot air, the same way a hot air balloon does.
