    Colour Pendulum

    This experiment is called Colour Pendulum because the pendulum makes beautiful oscillating patterns with colours. First, take a paper or plastic cup. Then poke a hole under it. Next, attach strings to it and hang it to a frame like in the video. The last thing to do is fill the cup with colours and let it spin. Watch the video to find out.

    Oobleck: Solid or Liquid?

    The name Oobleck comes from Dr. Seuss’ book Bartholomew and the Oobleck (amazon.ae or amazon.in). We made oobleck with corn flour and water. It is a non-Newtonian fluid like toothpaste, ketchup and quicksand. If you put pressure on it, it behaves like a a solid. Otherwise it behaves like a liquid. We had fun making and playing with it.

    The Enormous Crocodile

    This book was written by Roald Dahl. This is a story about a big, bad, greedy, ENORMOUS crocodile. He likes to eat little children. He plays many tricks to catch children, but the other animals in the jungle named Humpy – Rumpy, Trunky, Roly – poly, and Muggle – Wump prevent him from doing so. I like the story because it is a bit funny and at the same time it shows that you can stand up against bad guys. If you would like to buy this book, you can get it from amazon.ae or amazon.in.

    Liquid Flag

    This experiment uses liquids of different densities. The most dense liquid goes to the bottom while the least dense liquid stays on top. We used this principle to create layers of three different liquids – supersaturated sugar solution with green food colour, milk and oil. Watch the video to see how we did this.

    Pepper & Soap Experiment

    This is a very simple experiment with just pepper and soap. The sprinkled pepper powder quickly moves away when dish washing soap is added. This is because soap changes the surface tension and pushes the water molecules and pepper away. Be warned that the pepper will have to be replaced each time you add soap. For your safety, please use safety goggles since pepper can sting your eyes.

    Archimedes’ Principle: Floating Boat

    This video is a simple experiment to show Archimedes’ Principle. The principle states that an object will float if the weight of the water displaced by the object is more than the weight of the object. A heavy boat floats because of this.
