Try These Scientific Experiments Created by Dyson Engineers

Dyson engineers want to know: Are your kids ready for a challenge ? Well, they may not have been there before, but they have been at home for a month now and they are bored. Now is a good time to try something new.

The James Dyson Foundation has developed 44 science and technology problems probably better known as science experiments – that children can do at home. They include many ingredients or tools that you already have in your kitchen or home. Tasks include creating:

  • Shish kebab from balls
  • Underwater volcanoes
  • Tornado in a bottle
  • Meteorological balloons
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Dancing raisins
  • Lava lamps
  • Invisible ink
  • Cardboard boats
  • Water clock

And if you or your kids are a bit like me, you might just enjoy watching the engineers do some experiments themselves and save you work. Spaghetti bridges made by mechanical engineers , anyone?

You can also see how engineers create cardboard chairs , periscopes , balloons, and more.

In addition to simple instructions and illustrations for each task, the foundation also provides a checklist in a downloadable PDF so kids can check the boxes as they complete each task and keep track of how much they’ve done so far.
