My ds (10) is a born inventor. He started at the ripe old age of three ~stringing up contraptions all over the house with found items…like his elder twin sisters’ stockings, cardboard tubes, drinking straws, rubber bands, and packing tape…just to name a few…the list goes on and on and on!!
His new favorite site to visit and imitate is Steve Spangler Science. They have a great science "toy" catalog that he loves to pick from for birthdays and Christmas. If you go to his site, you can click on videos that demonstrate so many cool science concepts. …OOOH! Don’t doubt! They aren’t just scientific concepts though, it is FUN! Click on See the Videos and you will have everyone surrounding you at the computer! And! Here is Steve’s Blog.
If you head over to the Bruggietales site you will see some similar experiments with soda and mentos. Thank you, David for the videos!
