Science At Home : 2 Fun Experiments!

I’ve mapped out two fun, easy experiments that you can do with your kids, grandkids, highlight in a zoom meeting, or classroom.

I shouldn’t call science a trick, but both of these easy experiments make great practical jokes.

So let’s get to it. Time to trick…I mean impress your posse with science at home!

Artificial Satellites and How to See Them

How To See Artificial Satellites

Ever wonder how to see artificial satellites! You can see artificial satellites with the naked eye. I’m going to show you how.

Science At Home : Magnets

People in movies and books find their way out of the woods by making their own compass out of who knows what. This skill is COOL.

In the interest of us all being cool, a blog post was in order.

Science At Home: Candle Trick and Fire!

If you want to impress your kids, grandkids, significant other, neighbor or your dog, I’ve got a few cool tricks you can show them! No advanced degrees needed.

Fireworks

How Do Fireworks Work? With STEM!

I love fireworks! Ever wonder how they work? With chemical compounds! Let’s look into why they glow in different colors.

The Quest for Blue

I love the color blue! It’s not found as often naturally as I’d like. Someone’s probably written a doctoral thesis on the topic, but it seems that evolution favors other colors.

Mice with Infrared Vision…will humans be next?

Our world is full of beautiful colors, so it’s easy to forget that the spectrum of light visible to humans is a teeny sliver of what’s out there in the universe. But wouldn’t it be fantastic to see in the dark? Scientists have done that, with mice!
