Steve's 13th Appearance on the Ellen Show – In Case You Missed It

On February, 29, 2012, Leap Day, Steve Spangler made his 13th appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. As always, he brought some of his favorite, explosive and nail biting experiments. Ellen, who never wants to know what Steve is doing before the show, refused to stand in front of a swinging bowling ball. (We can't imagine why.) The swinging bowling ball [...]

Heading Back to the Ellen Show with 4,000 Ping Pong Balls

Should Ellen DeGeneres be worried that our team is bringing 4,000 ping pong balls to her studio for my appearance on Monday, April 26th? Based on the things that have fizzed, popped, caught on fire or exploded in the past, there’s no need for worry… right? It’s always an honor to be invited back on the show. Whenever Ellen’s producers call, [...]

Back to the Ellen Show – Fire Ball, Toilet Paper and a Bed of Nails

We're back from another taping at the Ellen DeGeneres Show and we had a blast. I use the pronoun "we" because this taping required a team of people to orchestrate the final stunt... the Bed of Nails. This segment featured the Methane Bubble Fire Ball (always a crowd pleaser), a demonstration of Bernoulli's Principle with floating ping-pong balls, beach balls and [...]

What Really Happens at the Ellen Show

If you're a fan of the Ellen Show, you know that the show recently moved to a new set on the Warner Bros Studio lot. The new studio is huge... great for exploding clouds of liquid nitrogen! Watch the video, but keep reading to learn what happens behind all of those clouds. I've mentioned this before, but it deserves a second mention. [...]

The featured experiments include the Baby Diaper Secret, Fire Water and several versions of our potato guns (okay... call them "launchers"). Learn how to do the experiments featured on the Ellen Show

More Science on the Ellen Show – Coming February 13, 2008

According to her producers, Ellen DeGeneres is still wild about science... and she wants to know what I might have up my sleeve for February 13th. During the first visit, Ellen changed her voice, triggered a eruption of oxygen bubbles and shot giant smoke rings at the audience. Ellen performed the famous Tablecloth Trick on the second visit, prepared food using [...]

Back from the Ellen Show… She Did It!

Watch Steve's Science Demos on Ellen Ellen hit a science home run! She whipped off the tablecloth, smashed the veggies and popped the pumpkins like a pro. We just returned from the Ellen Show studios in Burbank, California, and I couldn't be more excited (and relieved) about the segment. The relief part comes from the fact that the producers selected [...]

More Spangler Science on the Ellen Show

I'm honored to have been asked back as a return guest on the Ellen Show on November 1, 2007 for some more science. I received the phone call yesterday from the producer who asked, "I think Ellen would really enjoy that exploding pumpkin demo you do. What do you think?" What do I think? I think Ellen could make any science [...]
