Geyser in a Bottle! Science!!!

 Ever wish you could control the weather? In this experiment, we’ll harness the weight of the atmosphere to make a tiny storm in a beaker! As you read this sentence, the air around you is exerting enormous pressure on your body. Imagine a jacket made of one-inch checkerboard squares. Now imagine that each tiny

Exploring Chemistry with Fire & Ice

Can you change the speed of a reaction just by changing the temperature? That’s what we’re going to find out! First, we need to understand the reaction: This balloon is filled with hydrogen, and then it is lit on fire. This is known as a combustion reaction, where hydrogen combines with oxygen. This means that

Crush A Can Day…Recycle!

Each day, a typical person generates over 4 pounds of waste. Over half ends up at the dump. Future anthropologists will learn a lot about the millennial world from its landfills. In 500 years, disposable diapers will just be starting to decompose, and the remains of today’s plastic bags will still be present twice as

What is a Superconductor?
What is a Superconductor?

Lots of materials are conductors, meaning electricity can flow through them. However, even power lines, which have the sole job of transporting electricity, aren’t perfect. A little bit of the energy gets lost as the electricity flows. This loss of energy is called resistance. Resistance isn’t a bad thing. We use it for a lot of
