A sharing of science experiences between the Cool Science Dad and his two daughters. Updates on Monday – Friday.
Yesterday I shared our expertise of watching the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990. Kids loved! It was just one week later we determined to do another family dinner/film evening with the youngsters choosing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II.

The Cassini spacecraft mission to Saturn first started in development within the Nineteen Eighties and launch from Earth to Saturn in 1997, getting into Saturn’s orbit in 2004. For the last 12 years Cassini has supplied astronomers on Earth a treasure trove of data to answer questions on Saturn, Saturn’s moons, and Saturn’s rings.

We collected bacteria samples from several areas, together with my 6 year outdated’s mouth, a doorknob, my cellular phone screen, my laptop computer keyboard, the lavatory sink, and the ground. We additionally collected a pattern from my dirty cellphone display screen however added anti-bacterial cleaning soap to the petri dish to see if this halts bacteria progress. Then we cleaned my cellular phone display screen and took a pattern to test bacteria progress from a cleaned cellphone display screen. We then setup the petri dishes in our homemade incubator. The aim is to determine which family objects include the most bacteria in addition to to check how anti-bacterial cleaners kill bacteria.
The different week my 6 and 10 yr previous opened up their Solar Powered Eco House With some assist from me placing collectively the trickier elements, they constructed the house relatively quickly. The cool thing about the home is that it exhibits both how a solar cell can power totally different components, but also the circuitry. Some of the sites present ideas. Some provide you with step-by-step instructions for conducting experiments. Some present kids recommendation on creating projects for science festivals. And some have boards where youngsters can get assist once they’re stuck. Many of those websites have videos for example their experiments.
