Whether you're whipping up something spooky for Halloween or crafting an unforgettable lesson about the states of matter, DRY ICE experiments create an unforgettable learning experience. Featured on The Ellen Show!
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.
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 [...]
Let's start with a huge thanks to Ellen DeGeneres and everyone at the Ellen Show for inviting me back for more fun and a few science experiments. It was a great show with an extra level of buzz backstage because Matt Damon was Ellen's special guest. I was especially excited to get to share my latest discovery with Ellen and her [...]
Whenever we're fortunate enough to have the producers from the Ellen DeGeneres Show call our office, we know that the next few days are going to be wild. As I've mentioned in the past, the producers are very hands-on when it comes to selecting the preliminary list of science demos and listening to our ideas for ways to allow Ellen to [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
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. [...]
If you couldn't get enough of flying potatoes the first time, the nice people at the Ellen Show are rerunning the show that originally aired on April 15, 2008. The featured experiments include the Baby Diaper Secret, Fire Water and several versions of our potato guns (okay... call them "launchers").

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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
