At Unistage we’re all about the fun factor – combining education with fun for a lesson your children certainly won’t forget!
In keeping with this, we thought we’d share some ultra fun science experiments that you can do in your kitchen – educating your little ones with all things science while keeping them amused…

For a little demo of fluid dynamics, you can create your very own vortex with just water and oil.
What you’ll need: Empty two-litre drinks bottle, olive oil, water
As the oil is less dense than the water, it will be sent whizzing out from the vortex – leaving you with your own tornado in a bottle.
If it’s raining outside, why not explain the reasoning behind April showers with a scientific experiment that provides insight to the weather.
What you’ll need: Water, food colouring, clear jar, shaving foam
See how it begins “raining” in the jar, with the food colouring transferring through the “cloud” as it gets to heavy and can’t hold the water any more. This demonstrates that when a cloud gets to heavy, it begins to rain.

To demonstrate the science of structure, why not carry out this fun experiment with a box or two of eggs.
What you’ll need: A few packs of large eggs, bucket of soap and water, barefoot friends, large bin liner.
The structure of the egg should support your weight much like a three-dimensional arch structure. If you were to hold an egg with your hand and squeeze the top and bottom it wouldn’t crack as these are the strongest points of an egg.
