The Kid Should See This

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 600 submitted projects, and GE’s compilation video, via jtotheizzoe, includes a wide variety of shared experiments from kids and adults alike.

It’s fun to watch, but it’s also an excellent resource for checking out science experiments (like these) that you can do yourself. We’re definitely inspired to try a few…

How much science can you fit into 6 seconds?

Update: from Joe at It’s Okay to Be Smart, here’s a list of all of the experiments explained, including some links to instructions.
