science experiments

science experimentHello and welcome to the science experiment section, it’s great to have you here. You’ll find lots of ideas to use in class or at home that are all hands on and a great introduction to the wonderful world of science.

Many of the experiment are simple to do using objects you’ll find around your home. It’s important that you have adult supervision and permission before you try any of these free science experiments. This subject can be so much fun and you’ll learn so much, just enjoy and take your time to read and follow all the instructions. These easy to use experiments are fun for everybody. So without further ado, lets dig in and have fun!

  • Soap Experiment

  • Secret Atom Experiment

    An element is a chemical made from one type of atom. Oxygen, gold, copper, iron and helium are all elements.Putting two or more elements together is a compound. Water and acid are compounds.

  • Paint Experiment

    Have you ever been to a museum where you could see jewelry, pottery and fabric the Indians made? Have you ever wondered how they were able to make such bright and colorful things? Where did they get their paint?

    Have you ever wondered why some things are easier to spin than others? There are actually several ways to explain the motion of spinning.

  • Dirt Experiment

    Have you ever stopped to think about what dirt is made of? If you haven’t, you will be surprised to know that all dirt is not alike.

  • Genes Experiment

    Every living cell has genes. Genes are like a built-in instruction book for the cell. Genes tell sells what to look like, how to act, and how to survive.

  • Rocks Experiment

    Sedimentary rock is a form of rock that is made when tiny particles of rocks and minerals are pushed and pressed together to form one rock.

  • Milk Experiment

    You know milk comes from cows and that you need that same milk to make ALL dairy products—including cheese. What you might not know is that the cows are preparing their milk.

  • Surface Tension

    Surface Tension is the ability of a liquid to allow objects to float on top of it.

  • Mystery of Spinach

    Every living thing is unique—no two things are exactly alike (except for identical twins). We know this is true because of deoxyribonucleic acid.

  • Toothpaste Experiment

    You already know how important it is to brush your teeth. You also know that there is a right and a wrong way to brush your teeth.

  • Heart Experiment

    The heart is muscle in the body. The heart is divided into four parts. These parts are called chambers. The job of each chamber is to pump blood to the organs of the body.

  • Solar Power

    Solar power comes from the sun. Solar power can heat water, heat your home, provide electricity for lights, and many other things.

  • Push and Pull

    Newton’s Laws of Motion tell us three things about how and why things move.Law of motion #1: An object will remain at rest until an outside force puts it in motion.

  • Acid Rain Experiment

    Pollution is a big problem in our society. Our water, our land, and our air are polluted because of the things we do.

  • Melt or Freeze Experiment
