Grow dozens of dazzling crystals and conduct 15 illuminating experiments with this classic science kit. Experiment with four chemically different crystals each with different properties, including potassium alum crystals that form regular octahedrons, rapidly growing sodium sulfate crystals, long needle-shaped sodium acetate crystals, and plaster which is made from gypsum crystals.
Let your young confectionary scientist have as much fun chewing their experiment as they will have learning the science behind it. Get ready for some sticky gooey fun! This kit makes over a half pound of the most delicious bubble gum.
Each of these giant test tubes holds a cool science experiment. Learn about super strong bubbles that you can touch, make and mold your own super bouncing ball, write secret messages with disappearing ink and make a batch of slimy, gooey Insta-Worms.
BJ and Howie are familiar voices to morning listeners of Alice 105.9. Whenever their conversation veers off on a science tangent, I know that my phone might ring. Several months ago, Howie was so certain that the studio was infected with mold spores that he paid to have his workplace tested. Any guesses? That's right... no mold of any significance. Today's [...]
I'm excited that people are using our library of easy science experiments over at SteveSpanglerScience.com. Over 100,000 people receive our Experiment of the Week,but as you might imagine the level of interest goes through the roof at this time of the year when everyone is searching for a cool science experiment or science project idea. My hope is that parents will [...]
Isabella is a 5-year-old super science kid who lives in Caguas, Puerto Rico. She has been conducting science experiments since she was two years old.
Isabella is a very curious child. She wants to know how things work, she’s very interested in nature, animals, the weather all those things fascinate her. When she was a toddler we took her to a children’s [...]

We take a lot of calls during science fair season and throughout the year from students and their parents for help on projects. One question we receive more than most is a concern when the results of the project didn't support the hypothesis or have the intended outcome.
Let's start with the hypothesis. What is a hypothesis?
After you [...]
This contest has ended. Thank you for entering. Congratulations to our winner, Melitsa @playactivities!
You'll be the hit of the party if you win 25 gallons of Spangler Slime - that's 95 liters for those mad scientists who love the metric system. This isn't some pre-made slime... no... it's Spangler's special PVA formulation for concocting the perfect batch of slime! If you're [...]
The students at Wilder Elementary in Littleton, Colorado proved that Mom is right, "Wash your hands with soap and warm water!"? The third grade class did an experiment using Petri dishes prepared with agar (a seaweed derivative). Agar is an ideal "food"? source for the bacteria. The students collected samples around the school including on top of the tissue box, door [...]
