100 Fun Science Experiments / Science Fair Projects for Kids

Amazing collection of science experiments and science fair projects that you can try with your kids and students at home or at school.

Enjoy the huge collection of Fun and Interesting Experiments / Science Fair projects for all Kids!

In this ever-changing world, simply knowledge is not enough! The only way to bridge the gap between knowledge and real-time application is by performing experiments.

The school does a great job in inculcating practical skills in children by arranging projects and exhibitions.

So, we decided to help your child come up with some amazing experiments and impress their teachers and peers.

100 Science Experiments for Kids

Crystal-based Experiments 

Crystals are fun to play with but the fact that kids can make crystals of their own using some basic chemicals is all the more interesting!

They can make their own snowflakes and add customized crystals to their favourite objects. Not worrying about them melting, they can hang it up on their Christmas tree and show it off.

The below-mentioned experiments will help them venture into the magical world of crystals and the process of making them.

Crystal based experiments
  1. Learn how to Make Snow Crystals at Home!
  2. Make your own Crystal Snowman!
  3. Learn how to make a Borax Crystal Flower!
  4. DIY a Crystal Candy Cane
  5. Make your own Crystal Hearts!

Atmospheric Pressure-based Experiments

We humans cannot quite tell the effects of atmospheric pressure on our body because the effect has been there since the day we were born.

Kids can study the effect of atmospheric pressure by experimenting with different objects.

From inflating a balloon to building a balloon-powered car, kids can study the pushing and pulling of air and the motion it causes to an object near it.

Your child will be able to raise up the water level thereby going against gravity. The following experiments are going to spark a light in the minds of your kids.

Atmospheric Pressure based Experiments

Surface Tension-based Experiments

Surface tension is a phenomenon that every liquid, up to some extent, shows.

It is nothing but the sticky effect liquids show on the walls of the container or any boundary as such.

Surface tension is a very interesting concept and hence, by performing the experiments given below, kids will not only grasp it well but also start to notice its day-to-day applications.

The purpose of performing experiments on surface tension is to make the children aware of its wide range of applications.

Using this concept, kids can form bubbles of different shapes and sizes. They can also build soap powered boats. All the possible, and fun, applications of surface tension are mentioned below.

Surface Tension Based Experiments
  1. Pierce a Skewer and Watch the Balloon not Pop at all!
  2. DIY your Square Bubble
  3. Make a Soap Powered Boat!
  4. The Bubble Tree Wand
  5. Cute Heart Shaped Bubble Wands
  6. Cute Easter Egg Bubble Wands

Electricity and Magnetism

The world is governed by the phenomenon of electricity and magnetism. Electricity can produce magnetism and magnetism can produce electricity.

Static electricity works on the concept of friction. Friction causes the exchange of electrons, hence cause a small amount of electricity.

How are we supposed to make the kids understand such complex terms?  Simply, ask them to perform activities and experiments that are mentioned below.

These experiments are going to help them grasp concepts at a faster rate. From questions like why do paper pieces stick to the comb, to making their very first electromagnet, we will guide them through our experiments and make them jr. geniuses.

Biology-Based Experiments

Kids are curious beings. What if, out of the blue, they ask you the lifecycle of a ladybug or a silkworm? Why and how do plants breathe? Why is brushing teeth so important? Won’t it be a little overwhelming to tell them the entire process verbally?

That is exactly why performing experiments is very much important. The purpose of the below-mentioned experiments is to build in them the biological terms and their application in real life.

These experiments teach your kids important life processes like respiration, absorption and bacterial growth. Each experiment is aimed toward complete understanding and application of concepts.

Luminance-based Experiments

Children love working with lasers. The light that emits from lasers mesmerizes them. It’s so much fun to walk with a fluorescent stick at night!

Can you believe what impact would it have on their minds if we told them they can illuminate ice cubes? How about emitting light off of water?

Performing the below experiments, the child will know exactly what superpowers, simply to put it, chemicals, he/she needs to emit light out of any object.

They can create customized lamps by using home ingredients. Here are some experiments kids can perform to see the magic of science!

Density-based Experiments

Why do you think ice-cream floats above your smoothie? Why are air conditioners installed up on the wall and heaters next to the floor? Why are cold fluids denser than hot fluid?

You might have the answer but the learning doesn’t stop at knowing, it requires the application of knowledge too. 

The experiments mentioned below help kids to grasp the importance of the density of the different fluid and gives them enough knowledge of whether an object is going to sink or float.
