DIY science experiment tips!

Postby smartmummy » Tue Nov 01, 2011 11:53 pm

Hi All!

My son prefer to see the changes of anything scuh as from egg,flour,sugar and butter to cake,or cookies ,simple cooking dishes.

Now he is in P3.His T asked to grow green beans at home.He did and it grew well.Now one of the plants' leaves rotting.What could be the reason?He (me) poured a little water to it.But he bought a small pot.Yesterday he digged around the plant so that the root will get the air.
I found following info in the web
Oxygen is the most important root requirement because the roots need oxygen to convert sugar to energy. The more oxygen available to the roots, the more energy they can transfer to the plant.
Temperature also affects root growth and function

How about ur experience with ur kids' science projects?
What are the projects u do?
Where can we get the experiment tools?

Smartmummy, glad you enjoyed reading the posts. Have just added a simple experiment on the browning (oxidisation) of apples. It is an everyday phenomenon. Hope that kids can learn some Science concepts pertaining to everyday life.

How can you make a raw egg bounce? Is it possible?

Materials:
1 raw egg
1 bottle of white vinegar
1 container / bowl
water

Steps:
1. Place an egg into a container / bowl.
2. Pour white vinegar into the container until the eggs are completely submerged. Observe what happens.
3. Change the vinegar on the second day and subsequent days for a week.
4. Pour the vinegar away and rinse the egg with water.
5. Observe what happens to the egg.
6. Bounce the egg.

Note: You can place the egg in vinegar for about 48 hours and the egg will still be able to bounce.

To find out the scientific principle behind this experiment, please read the post on my blog, http://serenagreenhouse.blogspot.com
