In this collection of demonstrations, learners explore Newton's Laws of Motion.
This simple, yet surprising physics demonstration challenges preconceptions about forces, and demonstrates the strength of atmospheric pressure.
In this demonstration, learners observe as a bottle is placed on a table with wooden hoop balanced on top and a pencil balanced on top of the hoop.
Trick your family and friends with this creepy crawler that moves up and down. In this activity, learners construct a circuit and motor device that will move a homemade spider in a spooky way.
Use this activity (10th on the page) to help learners explore memory and how sometimes your brain makes up its own memories. Learners will read and try to remember the words in list #1.
In this activity, learners discover that they can modify a regular piece of paper so that it's large enough for them to walk through!
In this physics demonstration, learners will be surprised when a handkerchief holds water in an upside-down glass.
In this activity, learners construct a three-dimensional ambiguous cube to explore visual illusions and how our brains interpret or misinterpret information.
In this activity, learners construct a device that allows them to view 2-D images in 3-D.
In this activity, learners explore inertia as they attempt to whip a strip of paper out from under two coins dangling on the rim of a water glass.
In this demonstration about momentum, use physics to distinguish between a hard-boiled egg and a raw egg without cracking them open.
In this physics demonstration, learners are challenged to break a raw egg just by squeezing it. Learners will be shocked by their inability to complete the deceivingly simple challenge.
In this activity about light and reflection, learners discover that what you see is often affected by what you expect to see.
In this optics activity, learners conduct an experiment to find out why two eyes are better than one!
In this science trick, learners get an egg to stand-up on its long-axis vertical to a table's top.
In this activity about depth perception, learners create an optical illusion in a shoe box.
In this trick, hold your hand over a burning candle without getting burned, by reflecting and transmitting the light of two candles. This activity is best suited as a demonstration.
In this number puzzle/trick, learner #1 thinks of a number between 1 and 63. Learner #2 shows learner #1 six cards and asks them whether the cards contain their number.
In this activity (13th on the page), learners complete a simple illusion trick to see through their own hand.
