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.
Steve Spangler is known for creating amazing hands-on science experiences for kids. Whether it involves kits, toys, or incredible experiments, kids leave an experience with Steve feeling like science magicians.
Over the last decade and change, Steve has also spent one afternoon a week making adults feel like science magicians on Denver’s local NBC affiliate, 9News – KUSA. News anchors, meteorologists… you [...]
Kirk Montgomery and our friends at 9News here in Denver have created a whirlwind of excitement over the Broncos amazing season with Clingy Thingys - United in Orange. Fans in Denver can't get their hands on them fast enough.
So that left us to answer the question - how does the Clingy Thingy work?
The Clingy Thingy does not use adhesive to attach [...]
One of our favorite kid scientists, Doctor Mad Science, was featured last week in the New York Daily News. His science videos share DIY science experiments and activities to an audience of kids and their parents.
We were introduced to 11-year-old Jordan Hilkowitz a few years ago. He is an amazing online video star who shares his versions of kid-friendly science experiments [...]

Our annual Weather and Science Day reached a new height this year with the launch of a weather balloon during the event. The weather balloon was launched with help from The Edge of Space. During it's flight, it reached the edge of space at a height of 93,000 feet. That's higher than Mount Everest and higher than what a military jet [...]
Who else but Steve shows up at a television studio and makes a request to hang a 16-pound bowling ball from the ceiling? It's for science, silly, and a lesson in the Laws of Motion.
9News Anchorman Mark Koebrich helped Steve demonstrate energy and motion. When hung on a rope, the bowling ball becomes a pendulum. The ball swings back and forth. [...]
It was Steve's first time working with 9News anchor Corey Rose. Someone should have warned Corey to go light on the hairspray and wear fire retardant clothes. She also should have never handed Steve a $20 bill.
During this segment, Steve performed the Burning Money experiment. Soak a bill in rubbing alcohol and water, then light it on fire. Surprisingly, the money [...]
Do you prefer a real tree or a fake tree for Christmas? Or do you just go with a recycled newspaper tree instead?
To make this incredibly tall and thin unique tree, take eight pages out of the newspaper and tape them end to end. Roll them all up into a tube. Using very strong and sturdy scissors, make several cuts from [...]
I took a large smoke ring blaster that I used on the Ellen DeGeneres Show to the 9News studios in Denver this week. I demonstrated the power of air pressure and what a microburst looks like. What resulted was giant smoke rings blown across the television studio and scripts and hairdos in chaos.
The smoke ring blaster is a larger version of [...]
This experiment takes a little karate and an understanding of air pressure. If you lay a yard stick down on a table and hit it with your best karate-chop, what will happen to the stick? Will it break? Most likely it will flip off the table and wing someone in the eye. So how do you hold down the stick so [...]
