There is one experiment after another on this channel. I guess you can't tell from the first video. Here is one we found really neat. So if you click on the link you will find the channel on youtube.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyYz-1gqt68&feature=related  :) Really cool science!

Yesterday the kids (10yrs & under) and I watched several science experiments. Their Dad stopped in and watched 1 with us. Afterwards we talked about what we learned. Today we plan to return and watch again.  The second video I posted above (osmosis eggs) is one the kids and I really liked. Another one we were impressed with was about how to build an engine. I'm impressed. That's why I'm bumping this up, just in case someone missed this post yesterday.  Science is not boring any more. :D

My husband and older 2 built an electromagnetic motor and posted it on youtube. My 7yoDS loves to have stuff posted.

Hey, that's neat!  If you share the link the kids and I will watch. My son is the same age as yours. His favorite subject is science. :)

Well, that video is a little weird. In the foreground is the motor/rotor and then my son is behind it. Cole's holding a bent metal wire coat hanger above it and staring at the spinning wire. LOL I'm not quite sure what he was doing but he thought the coat hanger might interrupt the magnet sphere around it, I think. LOL Homeschoolers are weirdos, huh? -_- LOL

Sounds neat. Yeah, they actually get involved in their work. We did some weird experiments with lemons when learning how to make a battery last year.

Love the Electromagnetic motor video! My son will enjoy it, and want to make one for sure.

Thanks for sharing.

Here's country Grandpa's rugged electric motor made with a mouse trap. Kids can learn from grandpa's too, right?! I don't know...I just like all characters. :) Anyway, this looks easy enough. I'll get my dh to build this with the kids.
