Experiments

Recreates marine currents

Marine currents are natural phenomena essential to the survival of marine ecosystems. They are the result of the phenomenon of convection.
A phenomenon that you can easily recreate at home with this easy to do experiment. […]

Chemistry

Digesting gelatine with a pineapple

Do you know how food is digested in your stomach? It’s thanks to tiny little molecules called enzymes. In other words, proteins that can break down everything you swallow into microscopic pieces. How about experimentally observing digestion in your kitchen with … a pineapple and gelatin? Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which is used to tenderize meat, among other things. […]

Experiments

Creates optical illusions with water

Using the properties of light to create illusions is a lot of fun. Have you ever noticed how images appear differently through a glass of water? This phenomenon is related to the refractive properties of light, an ability to change direction when it passes through another medium. […]

Experiments

Make a cat disappear in a glass of water.

Do you remember the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland? With this experiment, you will make the Cheshire Cat disappear in a glass of water, and keep only its famous smile and mischievous eyes. Using not magic, but the power of total internal reflection of light. […]

Biology

Red, yellow, green, why do the leaves change colour in the fall?

Have you ever wondered where the colors of the leaves come from? And why do they change colour with the seasons? In this experiment, you will extract pigments from the leaves and use a chemical technique called chromatography. Using capillary forces, you will discover the colourful world hidden in tree leaves. […]

Biology

DNA extraction from strawberries

Extracting DNA from strawberries couldn’t be easier! With elements available in your kitchen, you will extract this immense molecule present in all living beings and be able to observe it, without a microscope. […]

Chemistry

Magic milk

Adding food coloring to milk is nothing very exciting, except the beauty of the colors that spread on the surface of the milk. But if you use one additional ingredient, you will observe an explosion of colors in the milk. The colors mix and turn on themselves as if by magic. This magic milk experience will allow you to observe the movement of molecules and to understand that milk is a mixture of many things. […]

Chemistry

Create your homemade fire-extinguisher

With this experience, you will understand that fire needs oxygen and that in the absence of it, the candle goes out. The trick is therefore to eliminate the oxygen around the candle. Carbon dioxide is an inert gas used in fire extinguishers. When it replaces the air around the candle … the fire goes out. Try to make your own fire extinguisher. […]

Biology

Grow peppers from pepper waste

You’ll never buy pepper seeds for your vegetable garden again with this tip. With this simple experience, you will understand what a seed needs to germinate. Does it need light or dark? Is it possible to germinate them faster? […]

Botany

The tree leaves are red

The leaves of trees are green in daylight. It is thanks to chlorophyll, an important molecule which is involved in photosynthesis to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. But under black light, chlorophyll is red. A phenomenon linked to fluorescence. […]

Chemistry

A treasure map with invisible ink

The invisible ink is very useful for drawing treasure maps or writing secret messages. Only those who know chemistry will find a way to reveal your message. Let’s use the onion juice to prepare the invisible ink. […]

Experiments

Yeast’s inflating power

Here is a great and visual experience for you to discover the secret world of bacteria. They are very useful to us and we use them in many cooking recipes, for example. Watch how bacteria turn sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide using a simple soda bottle and a balloon.
It’s a great way to identify which drinks have sugar and which doesn’t. […]

Chemistry

Prepare an orange caviar

Use molecular chemistry to create foods with unexpected shapes. Do you think making orange juice beads is impossible? This is without counting on the properties of Agar, a natural molecule capable of gelling all liquids. Transform yourself into a molecular chemist to surprise your friends with your edible creations. […]

Chemistry

Transform milk into plastic

Did you know that plastic can also be produced from natural resources? The best example is milk! Milk proteins, huge molecules like those in plastics, can, under certain conditions, agglomerate to form a solid. […]

Experiments

Soap bubbles to make invitation cards

Soap is a lot more fun than you can imagine. Use its exceptional power to create multicolor and original invitation cards by taking advantage of the science behind tensioactive properties! […]

Chemistry

Make your bath bomb at home

A bath is even more fun with bath bombs that explode and fizz. It’s easy to make it yourself, in the colors of your choice and even with the fragrance you like. Do you want to add a festive touch? You can even add biodegradable glitters for a sparkling effervescence. […]

Chemistry

Try your homemade volcano

Observing a chemical reaction in your kitchen is possible. Build your volcano with sand. And then let’s move on to making lava. […]

Experiments

Hands full of germs

Washing your hands before eating is necessary to eliminate parasites invisible to the naked eye. Is it enough to put them underwater or is soap necessary? Thanks to the glitter, make this fun experience at home. […]
