World Scientist Day

How I celebrated World Scientist Day!


It was World Scientist Day last week and our school had us dressed up as our favourite scientist for the day.

Our teacher also send out a few easy experiments that we could do at home. I looked through and decided to try two of them.

The first one was a floating stickman. This was look straightforward enough. Basically, what we need is a plate, an oil based marker and some water. Draw a stickman or whatever picture u want on the plate, let it dry for a minute and place some water on the plate. The stickman will float….. pretty cool yeah?

I am trying it out using a round ball…. 🙂

My second experiment is the DIY lava lamp. The link my teacher send out was the one using Alka-Seltzer tablet but we don’t have it at home so I found one that does not require the tablet and it works just find. I love the bubbling part (try it and let me know if u like it too 🙂

Our cool LAVA LAMP experiment

The ingredients are really simple and we can find them readily available at home.

So what we need is just:

1 cup of cooking oil
1/2 cup of white vinegar
1 tsp of baking soda + 1 tsp water
Few drops of food colouring

This is a really cool experiment. Check out the video and try it! It is a MUST!!!

I really enjoyed this World Scientist Day and I hope u will too 🙂
