When my son, Jeremiah was was little, he loved searching through youtube videos for amazing science tricks and experiments.

Actually, he was quite the little pyromaniac and conducted several experiments involving fire!

Other science projects Jerry worked on and which you can see demonstrated in the video below, were:

  • making a working model of da Vinci’s ornithopter
  • making a lemon and potato battery
  • conducting electricity with salt water!
  • creating smog in jar

We even spent one whole day building and waiting for his solar balloon to take flight!

I’m not sure what scientific implications are behind his little tricks, but he sure did have a lot of fun impressing us with his scientific super powers!

    1. I’m so glad you came by! I’m trying to let him be in charge of his own education a bit more. It’s hard to do! You guys are such an inspiration to me!

  1. You’re a brave mama letting him play with matches. I’d be so worried about a fire, but he looks like a smart boy just wanting to learn about the science behind things.
