Hey, let’s make a volcano, and no that’s not your child – that’s your brain hoping to make things go boom! Well, the good news is that we have a few great science experiments that are awesome, clean and semi-easy to do. Best of all, they can be done straight from your living room with a few easy-to-get materials.
1. Create Your Very Own Lava Lamp
Not only is it educational, but it is also mesmerizing, granted you manage to get it right! Don’t worry, believe it or not – it is really a relatively easy experiment. In order to do it properly, you will need the following materials:
• Clear plastic water bottle, as well as lid for bottle
• Vegetable Oil
• Alka-Seltzer tablet
Steps To Complete The Project
The first step to creating your lava lamp would be to fill the empty plastic bottle. It should consist of approximately 75 percent vegetable oil.
The next step is color water, with the food coloring, and then take this solution, and fill the rest of the plastic bottle up.
After this, ensure that the lid of the bottle is secured to the bottle. Once the two layers are settled, crush the Alka-Seltzer tablet into small pieces.
Once you drop these small pieces into the solution in the bottle, the solution will have a chemical reaction and start to bubble and fizz. Thus creating a rather eye-captivating lava lamp.
