Fun Science Experiments

Science teachers looking for some fun experiments to demonstrate in class need to look no further than Steve Spangler's outstanding website.

You'll find DOZENS of experiments involving common household objects guaranteed to bring a smile to the face of your students. The experiments are sorted into various categories such as magnetism, light and sound, air, electricity, density, forces and motion and more.

He also explains the science behind each experiment so that once you've captured your students attention and imagination you can do a little teaching too.

Steve Spangler has been featured on a Denver television station many times, and you can watch streaming video of several of his experiments before trying it in your own classroom.

Steve has an entire section devoted to Halloween themed experiments. Be sure to check out the exploding pumpkin video!
