Voltaic batteries come in all shapes and sizes, turning chemical energy into the electrical energy we need to power our cell phones, iPods, tablets, cars… you name it! These batteries seem pretty complicated, but you can make a real voltaic battery right at home! Grab some vinegar, nails, copper wire, and an ice tray… you’re in for a lesson in circuits you’ll never forget. Want more experiments like this?

It’s probably the world’s most baffling optical illusion. Hold one arc above the other and ask the question, “Which arc is bigger?” The bottom arc will always look bigger than the top one, yet they are actually the same size! Reverse the arcs to make the other one look bigger. What you see is not always what you get! Keep reading and we’ll let you in on some presentation ideas and stunts that will really amaze and fool your friends. Want more experiments like this?

Graffiti Research Lab first introduced us to the awesome throwie idea, and we loved it. Ever since, we’ve been playing around with the idea of using light-emitting diodes (LED) and throwies as a great hands-on method to teaching science. You can do it, too, and we’ll show you how!Want more experiments like this?

Smartphones are used more frequently than for watching videos than ever before, but sometimes you just want a bigger viewing area. For those strapped for cash or in the mood to do something creative, you can construct your own Homemade Projector. All the project takes is a cardboard box, a smart phone, and a few basic tools. The result is a real, working projector that you’ve made with your own hands! Want more experiments like this?

Uploaded on Jul 22, 2014We've found an awesome new science activity that uses Cartesian divers. No, it's not Hook or Squidy, although they are pretty awesome, too. We're talking about the Five Divers experiment. This project features, you guessed it, five individual Cartesian divers, but they're all in the same bottle. Give the bottle a squeeze and watch as more divers sink as the pressure increases. Try it for yourself! Want more experiments like this?

Notebooks are a necessity in every science setting. Graphs, observations, procedures... all of science falls by the wayside without a way of recording the information. Here's a fun fact: two notebooks are even better than one! When you intertwine two notebooks, page by page, they become Inseparable Books! Check out this hands-on activity and see if you can overpower the friction between the books! Want more experiments like this?

See the full experiment here: http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/lab/experiments/smoke-bomb-smoke-ringsYou've seen Steve use a giant smoke ring launcher made from a modified trash can, but there's a way you can construct a smaller version at home! Using an empty coffee container and a smoke bomb, you'll be creating swirling vortexes of smoke in under 10 minutes. In addition to the awesome smoke ring launcher you'll have, you will also gain a new understanding of the movement of air and vortexes! Want more experiments like this?

Uploaded on Jun 24, 2014See the full experiment here: http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/lab/experiments/oil-spill-polymerJust imagine if the solution to an oil spill was this simple: Sprinkle a small amount of a non-toxic powder onto the layer of oil and in seconds the powder bonds to the oil, forming a sponge-like material that can be easily removed from the surface of the water. It's more than just a dream... a new form of superabsorbent polymer technology is changing the way environmental scientists approach oil spills and waste management problems. The results are amazing! Want more experiments like this?

Our favorite laws to break involve physics, movement, and motion! That’s why we came up with the Coin Tower demonstration. Using a butter knife, you’ll remove the bottom coin from an entire tower of coins. What’s the secret? Perform the project to find out! Want more experiments like this?

Uploaded on Sep 3, 2013Get Detailed Instructions here: http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/lab/experiments/mentos-soda-popdropSteve's son, Jack Spangler, decided that it is just too hard to pour soft drinks by turning a 2-liter bottle of soda upside down. The bottle is just too heavy. So Jack decided to use the power of Mentos and Diet Coke to fill 6 glasses at once and solve his problem. It's a fun, creative, hands-on way to utilize the epic Mentos Geyser in a way that harnesses it for your drinking pleasure.Want more experiments like this?

See the full experiment here: http://www.stevespanglerscience.com/lab/experiments/inertia-ringDo you think you can successfully perform the Steve Spangler Science inertia challenge? Balance a yellow ring on the mouth of an empty 1 or 2 liter bottle and place a hex nut or other heavy object on top of the ring. When the yellow ring is removed, the hex nut will drop straight into the bottle. It might take a little bit of practice, but you'll get it. Inertia rings are a perfect tool for introducing students to physics, motion, and inertia.Want more experiments like this?

That's a perfect combination, unless you forget to dry the vinegar off of the coin! With the Colorful Coins activity, you'll see how there is more to a shiny nickel or dime that initially meets the eyes.Want more experiments like this?
