How to Make Lightning - Two simple science experiments for kids to demonstrate how to make sparks and explain how lightning occurs. ( www.learnplayimag... )

Viscosity Now, experiment with how marbles react to fluids with a higher viscosity than water. Drop a marble in each of the following liquids: corn syrup, milk, honey, and oil. Explain that thicker liquids have a higher mass and make the marble move slower.  "Hypothesize before you perform the experiment about which liquid will move the marble faster or slower."

Temperature affects the viscosity of most liquids. This experiment focuses on the viscosity of shampoo in a bottle as it is heated and cooled.

Quickly build a steam engine. All that is needed is a copper coil, an aluminum baking ban, a tea-light candle, a binder clip and voila we had a steam engine boat toy that is fun and educational. Total time from idea to execution was two hours!
