A Basic Demonstration of Optical Cloaking

Above, A Basic Demonstration of Optical Cloaking. Cloaking is a term for hiding an object from view at specific frequencies, but evidently one can cloak things DIY-style with  four mirrors...

A home made string shooter & slow moving waves in rope

...Drop in slow motion, two turbines and a rope, a pendulum wave demonstration with bowling balls, and how to build your own Wave Machine physics demo. via The Awesomer....

A pendulum wave demonstration with bowling balls

...and “aaahs” are proof of its impact. In the archives: Citadel Physics’ Wave Pendulum, a Harvard Pendulum Waves demo, more pendulums, more rhythm, and more demonstrations. via Colossal....

A physical demonstration of gravitational waves

...objects and the waves that they produce. There’s no way to see how one causes the other, and I think we can fix that with an actual physical demonstration of...

A red hot ball of nickel is dropped in a cup of water

A red hot ball of nickel is dropped in a cup of water, resulting in a most unexpected reaction, in this demonstration of the Leidenfrost effect by...

Aluminum foil boat floating on a sulfur hexafluoride sea

...can pour it into a glass container and float a light-weight aluminum “boat” on its gas “sea.” Watch this demonstration at the Physikshow of the University of Bonn. Check out...

Atlas robot jumps and backflips

The last time we saw Boston Dynamics’ Atlas robot, it was lifting boxes and being shoved around, a demonstration of its increasingly strong balancing technologies. In the video above,...

Build your own space-time warping demo for the classroom

the Apollo Program . Update: See how to set up this excellent demonstration in  this Fabric of the Cosmos how-to video. File under: physics and education. Thanks, @heathenreason....

Candle Chemistry – ExpeRimental

In this episode of ExpeRimental, Lisa and Josh explain the unseen as they make a flame jump through the air. Josh also measures how long it takes for...

Circular motion demonstration with a sparkler & a hula hoop

From physics teacher and film maker Alom Shaha, check out these simple demonstrations showing how something moving in a circle will move in a straight line when you remove...

Demo of the FloWave Ocean Simulator & the AMOEBA wave pool

Filmed by The School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh, this is the FloWave Ocean Simulator, a 2.4 million liter (634,013 gallon) controllable research pool for...

Demonstrations of the Coanda Effect

...well as more esoteric phenomena, such has levitating a ball in a stream of air. From the Harvard Natural Sciences Lecture Demonstrations channel on YouTube, Wolfgang Rueckner demonstrates the Coanda...

Dropping a neodymium magnet through a thick copper pipe

There are quite a few neodymium magnets falling through copper pipes on the internet, but we can still understand why this demonstration video is making the rounds: it’s...

Electromagnetic Induction – Science Demo

Generate your own electricity with some wire, a magnetic field, and the relative movement between the two of them:  Alom Shaha explains electromagnetic induction using this hand-powered –...

Electromagnetic Levitation Quadcopter

On a visit to Hyperloop One, a Los Angeles-based team working to create a near-vacuum tube-based transportation system, Veratasium‘s Derek Muller got to check out this Electromagnetic Levitation...

Euler’s Spinning Disk

We love this video of Euler’s (sounds like Oiler’s) Spinning Disk, not only because of the physics behind how long it spins on the slightly concave mirror base,...

ExpeRimental: How to Make Static Magic

Reveal your kids’ Jedi powers using static electricity with this episode of ExpeRimental from The Royal Institution of Great Britain. Watch ordinary household objects move without being touched...

GE’s Six Second Science Fair, a compilation

DIY experiments and videos are two of our favorite things, so we were thrilled to hear about GE’s Six Second Science Fair. The week-long celebration resulted in over...

Not finding what you're looking for? A few suggestions:
• Fewer words might give better results. Look up cats instead of funny cats.
• No need to search with the words videos or for kids included.
• Use related words: If searching for iceberg isn't working, try ice or glacier.
• Is everything spelled correctly?
• Browsing topics might help, too!
