Homeschool Science Experiment: On a clear night when Jupiter is up, you’ll be able to view the four moons of Jupiter (Europa, Ganymede, Io, and Callisto) and the largest moon of Saturn (Titan) with only a pair of binoculars. The question is, which moon is which? This lab will let you in on the secret to figuring it out.

The Sun illuminates half of the Moon all the time. Imagine shining a flashlight on a beach ball. The half that faces the light is lit up. There’s no light on the far side, right? So for the Moon, which half is lit up depends on the rotation of the Moon. And which part of the illuminated side we can see depends on where we are when looking at the Moon. Sound complicated? This lab will straighten everything out so it makes sense.

Sparks flying off in all directions…that’s fun. In this advanced lab, we will show how easy it is to produce those shooting sparks. In a sparkler you buy at the store, the filings used are either iron or aluminum.

    Make sure you wear gloves when doing this science experiment! If you're a science teacher in a classroom with lots of students, you can hand out plastic baggies to cover their hands.

Homeschool Science Experiment: Cold Light. What three colors do you need to make up any color in the universe? (You should be thinking: red, yellow, and blue.) Here's a trick question - can you make the color "yellow" with only red, green, and blue as your color palette? If you're a scientist, it's not a problem. But if you're an artist, you're in trouble already.

    I've had homeschool parents argue with me that this science experiment isn't possible... and then they try it for themselves.

Homeschool Science Experiment: Make a very annoying noise-maker using very simple materials to teach kids about sound and vibration!

    A group of homeschool students made this science activity into an orchestra one time - it was amazing to hear them play songs when it really sounded more like screeching.

    After you've watched the video, you can "pin it"!

Homeschool Science Experiment: Using only a rubber band and a single sheet of paper, you can make a rocket that flies over 75 feet! Just make sure to point it STRAIGHT UP so you don't knock any eyeballs out.

    This science experiment is great for teaching homeschool kids how to invent their own designs!

Homeschool Science Experiment: Spectrometers are used in chemistry and astronomy to measure light. In astronomy, we can find out about distant stars without ever traveling to them, because we can split the incoming light from the stars into their colors (or energies) and “read” what they are made up of (what gases they are burning) and thus determine their what they are made of.

    This is one of my favorite science experiments, since it's a lot like the spectrometers astronomers use in real life!

Homeschool Science Experiment: Using a few simple tests you can do right at home, you'll be able to tell if you've got a meteorite or not! Meteors are the smallest members of our solar system, ranging from pebble size to smaller than a grain of sand and usually weighing less than 2 grams. Kids will learn how to collect tiny meteorites very easily. They will also be able to tell a meteorite from an Earth rock.

    The big rock in this video is a real meteorite that I use when I teach kids science. They always guess that it's an Earth rock... but it isn't!

Homeschool Science Experiment: Hovercraft. When you slide a hockey puck on the street, it quickly comes to a stop. Take that same puck and slide it over a sheet of ice and you'll find it zooms a lot farther. What gives? This experiment is great for teaching kids about air-cushioned vehicles and air pressure.
