The best way to get your child interested in science is by doing SCIENCE stuff with them…

This is the second post by me under Fun with Science’ section

Have you seen a Lava Lamp. Is it not wonderful to see large colored bubbles sinking, rising and transforming. If you go to a shop to buy the same it will come at around Thousand bucks. The better the look and feel, higher the price. If I tell you, you can make this at home with your kitchen stuff (temporary one), won’t you be excited. All the more it’s a simple kitchen experiment which you can do with your kids. It’s easy to do, safe, and looks very cool.

Let’s get started

Take an empty glass and to it add water with food color added to it.

Water + Food color

To this now add vegetable oil. Add approximately double the amount of oil to water.

Lava Lamp
Water + Food color + Cooking Oil

Closely watch to see how two immiscible liquids behave.

Let the two layers settle and now add to it a pack of Eno salt and see the magic unfold.

 It will look much beautiful, if you place a flash light underneath it.

Why Science & Samosa ?

 

“Science is complex, I hate science especially mathematics”, majority of us fall in this group. At least once in lifetime you would have made this statement. But then we all enjoy the fruits of science.  We love using the internet, driving cars, watching television, going in an airplane and so on. So if the fruits of science is so good, its seeds cannot be that bad. We do so many science experiments daily like making dough, baking cakes, wine making, taking pills and many more. We keep reading on topics related to best solution for hair growth, best way to lose weight, manage your ‘x-disease’ doing this etc without knowing what’s the science behind it or how does it actually works.

Interesting facts- The average person, with an average pace, living until 80 years old, will walk the distance of about 110,000 miles. This will match up to walking around the earth 5 TIMES !!!
