Cosmic Mysteries in Your Kitchen

By User Zeimusu on en.wikipedia, via Wikimedia Commons

People worry that you can’t really teach your kids science without a school lab. Well, try these on for size;)!

You can simulate a white hole in your kitchen sink. Wired has a great article on not only how to do the white hole but a great break down of what it really is.

Then you can pop over to OrbitingFrog to read how to measure the speed of light. All you need is a microwave, a microwave safe square (or rectangle) dish and marshmallows or chocolate chips! It is an awesome experiment!

So go, learn and have fun with science!!!

  1. I LOVE home science experiments. These are really great! Like the idea of being able to test speed of light with a microwave, will definitely have to check it out!

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. This is great! We are just beginning homeschooling and we have been doing a Science Kit, but I need to get more into the meat of it! Thanks for the sites!
