Bubbles are cool and bubbles filled with fog are even cooler! Steve Spangler created Boo Bubbles as an easy and safe way for parents and teachers to explore the science of dry ice with fog-filled bubbles.
If you've followed us over the years, you know that NAEYC (the National Association for the Education of Young Children) is the first teacher conference where we introduced the famous Mentos Geyser Experiment. In 2006, we launched 700 geysers in the open air on the trade show floor. The Geyser Chamber made its debut in 2007 to show how the geyser [...]
So, what's in store for this year at the NAEYC annual conference? We have a science surprise for everyone who stops by our booth (#323). While I can't let the cat out of the bag right now, I can give you a few hints. It's totally hands-on and it's so large that it requires a forklift to move it. If you're [...]
It was quite a week for our Spangler Science team when we invaded Texas with 24 staff members and Spangler Ambassadors. Half the team headed to Fort Worth for CAST (the Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching) and half the team went to Dallas for NAEYC ( the National Association for the Education of Young Children). While our NAEYC team [...]
If you attended the annual NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) conference last week in Dallas, Texas, it wasn't hard to find the Steve Spangler Science booth. All you had to do was listen for the shouts of surprise as we launched over 600 Mentos Geysers with the Geyser Tube™ in our own take on the classic dunk [...]
Non-Newtonian fluids are an aspect of science that is simple, interesting, and a lot of fun. Non-Newtonian fluid experiments are also inexpensive; there are only two ingredients and both are probably already in your pantry.
There are so many cool experiments to keep kids busy and their imaginations soaring, and most of them don't cost much, if anything at all. Non-Newtonian fluids [...]
When I was a little kid, one of my favorite days of the year (besides Christmas Day) was the day the newspaper posted the list of required school supplies, and Mom took us to the drug store to buy them.
I loved looking at that list, and Mom always let me put the little checkmark beside the items as we put them [...]
Robots and other automated, mechanical beings have been a staple in science-fiction for a very long time, finding their first mentions in the ancient world. At the onset of the 21st century, however, robots became much more than an idea in a sketchbook. Robots are now a very real part of the modern world.
The world of robotics has seen its share [...]
Dr. Oz is known for his wacky and unique demonstrations to illustrate what happens inside the body. Recently, he donned a poncho and became the Mentos Boy in the Box.
He stepped in a sealed container to demonstrate what happens in the intestines when a food that doesn't agree with body chemistry is introduced into the stomach. The giant plastic box acted [...]
The hot, dry weather in Colorado has forced officials to enforce fire bans across the state. That means no campfires, no s'mores, no nuttin'. Or is it possible to harness the power of the sun using a technique that is used by Girl and Boy Scouts and other ingenious campers who want to spare the lighter fluid, charcoal or wood to [...]
