Water Science Experiments
Simple Experiment With a Big Surprise
Discover the properties of air, air pressure and surface tension while pleasing the crowd. The element of surprise is very important when you’re a science teacher or curious student. These experiments are great for science fair projects and can be real crowd stoppers.
How Does It Work?
Fill the glass jar with water and cover it with a card. Have one of your braver students or friends stand under the jar as you turn it over above his or her head. Note the amazement on the faces of your audience, but it’s nothing like you’ll see in a minute when you pull the card away from the overturned jar and dump the water on your unsuspecting—but hey, what happened? Hope you don’t mind a few screams. Who’s next? Think you can do it again? Of course, you can, it’s a science experiment.
Water Science Experiment Kit
Many young children don’t think about water unless they’re thirsty or it’s time for a bath, but with Steve Spangler’s inventive Water Science Kit, they can see water in a whole new way. With lessons and experiments that focus on cohesion, adhesion, surface tension, air pressure and more, children can get involved with water in a safe and fun way that helps them to learn about scientific properties and how to conduct experiments. Each kit contains eight experiments and everything you need to conduct them, along with colorful activity guides, questions, challenges and suggestions for further learning. These interesting and fun experiments will make kids eager to learn and will instill in them a lifelong love for science.
With activities for up to four children, this STEM Water Science kit is a great option for groups of kids to learn together both at home and in school. Guide your young scientists through each experiment or let them take the lead — they’ll certainly want to do so once they begin to experiment with surface tension and states of matter. Safe, clean and easy to use, the Water Science Kit makes for a great activity for any kid. The included activities also make for fantastic science fair inspiration.
Super Absorbent Polymer Powder
Water Gel soaks up to 500 – 800 times its weight in water in seconds! It uses sodium polyacrylate – the secret ingredient used to absorb “liquid” in diapers!
Make Some Science Fair Connections
The take-it-further challenges featured through this kit are great starting points for any science fair project. With the help and guidance from the adult science helper, it will be easy to focus in on any one of the experiments to create a great science fair project!

Water is Everywhere
Water is literally everywhere — even the human body is about 60 percent water. Nearly everyone finds the beach relaxing and rejuvenating because of the waves. Nobody can live without water for more than about three days.
Children can learn about the important properties of water with the Water Science Kit from Steve Spangler Science. This fun and educational kit includes eight different experiments with an Activity Guide and suggestions foradditional activities. Young scientists will learn about water surface tension, cohesion and adhesion, and will become acquainted with the process of conducting an experiment. Kids can also get ideas for their next science fairproject when they work with this kit.
