Experiment with Questacon
Questacon's Science Circus experiments to do at home
Discover the fun of science with these experiments from Questcon’s Science Circus. Why not grab some friends and make it a challenge. Using a few items from home, create a balloon powered car to race or see who can guess how long a decimal minute is by creating your own sand glass.
Do people say you’re full of hot air? Why not use it to power your brand new balloon powered car?! Just make sure you use a red balloon…it’ll go faster.
Time sure does drag slowly sometimes, but do you know whether your internal clock is running slow or fast? See if your brain is a good time keeper and whether you can make a sand glass or egg timer to measure 86 seconds. Why 86 seconds? We’ll explain in a decimal minute!
