List of Science Experiments That Can Wow Students of All Ages


Who says learning about Science is ever dull? I believe that no subject is boring in itself, but the way a subject is taught can have a significant impact on how the students will react. If explained in the excellent and fun way, students will get to learn and experience the wonderful world of Science minus the boring comments.

The exciting way of demonstrating and teaching Science even at the first meeting should be a priority, as first impressions do last. The list you are about to see is a favorite set of experiments that students and non-students alike have come to enjoy no matter their age is.

  • Colored Fire. The additives used in this experiment are safe and readily available. In general, this won’t produce smoke that is better or worse than the usual smoke. The chemicals used can be found in any household, and the colored fire is suitable for a kid’s campfire or even at home.
  • Instant Frozen Water. This experiment is a cool way to demonstrate how purified water can instantly freeze by cooling it to just below freezing point.
  • Hybrid Pasta Rocket. Hybrid rockets can propel themselves with a solid fuel source and a liquid oxidizer. An easy way to demonstrate this is by using pasta, yeast, and mouthwash.
  • Borax Crystal Snowflake. Yes, that’s right. We can make a crystal snowflake with Borax. This experiment shows the structure that is formed when chemical molecules bond together and grow crystals. This experiment is safe for kids, and when finished products are stored, you can use them to keep your storage area free from pests.
  • Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. This is one quick way to make ice cream, plus getting and transporting liquid nitrogen is easier than you think. You only need Liquid Nitrogen, Ice Cream, wooden spoon and plastic, metal or wooden bowl.
  • Clouds in a Bottle. When water vapor cools and then condenses into visible droplets of water, clouds are formed in the sky. All you need is a bottle of any kind and a few everyday household items.
  • Waterproof Sand. A substance that repels in water is called hydrophobic substance. This is done when sand is combined with a water-resistant chemical. The sand will remain dry even after being submerged in water.
  • Slime. That’s right, making slime is also a science experiment. Even kids can make safe slimes just by using a couple of ingredients. You can make the classic slime or the magnetic, radioactive-looking, glow in the dark or even foam slime. The list goes on.
  • Crystal Bubbles. This one is my favorite. All you need is a bubble wand, bubble mix, and a chilly weather and you’re good to go.
  • Rainbow in a jar. Different liquids have different masses and densities. By combining liquids with different densities and adding food coloring, you can make your very own rainbow in a jar.
This goes to show that science experiments do not need expensive materials and does not even have to be that complicated. With everyday household items, you can make experiments with a little supervision of an adult, just to be safe.
