Suds or Duds?  
In this activity students investigate the effect of hard water on soap. They compare soap in water with soap in water plus Epsom salt. Epsom salt is made of a chemical called magnesium sulfate. When magnesium sulfate is dissolved in water and added to soapy water, the magnesium combines with the soap. This combination is actually a new substance that doesn't dissolve well in water. The common name for this substance is soap scum. Since it can't dissolve in water, the soap in the soap scum can't get back into the water and can't make bubbles.

Racedrop Raceway  
In this activity, students create a 'racetrack' picture and cover it with a piece of wax paper. They add a drop of water and attempt to make the water drop follow the racetrack by tilting the paper. This works because the water beads up on the waxed surface, rather than wetting it, like regular paper. This illustrates how polar water does not mix with the nonpolar wax.

Testing Water?s Skin  
In this activity, students drop water onto a penny, counting how many can be added before they spill off the side. Then the experiment is repeated, only this time a small amount of detergent is placed on the surface of the penny. Students learn about surface tension and the effect of detergents on surface tension.

Water Walkers  
In this activity, students explore surface tension in water. Some insects literally walk on water. They can do this because of their light weight and broad support. The surface tension in the water is great enough to support the insects. Students in this activity try to fashion their own water walkers made from aluminum foil.

Zippy Zappy Boats  
In this activity, students make small plastic boats from a piece of Styrofoam. One has dish soap added to its back edge. Adding soap disrupts the arrangement of the water, and the water molecules near the boat have a harder time sticking to one another, making it possible for the boat to go forward.

Paint a Fresco  
A fresco is a painting made directly on fresh plaster. A chemical change happens as the fresco is being created. As the fresco dries, a chemical in the wet plaster called calcium hydrate combines with a chemical from the air called carbon dioxide. When these chemicals combine, the paint gets stuck in the plaster so that it won?t peel, chip, or wash off. This is one reason that frescoes can last a very long time.

Glitter Slime  
In this activity students make 'slime' from glue and water. The glue and water mixture contains long chains of a polymer called polyvinyl acetate. When you add the borax solution, it links the long polymer chains together, changing the liquid into a slimy glob. When you add the glitter to the slime, it stays there and does not easily come back out.,Students investigate how this slime is like mucus that we find in our bodies. Our natural mucus contains sugars and proteins, which are also polymers. Mucus protects many other parts of your body.

Eggstra-ordinary Gas Pressure  
Students place an egg between two inflated zip-closing bags. When dropped from a height the egg manages to survive, intact. By inflating and then sealing the zip-closing bags, students created gas,pressure inside the bags. There was nowhere for the air inside the bag,to go. The more air added, the greater the gas pressure inside the bag. Because of this gas pressure inside the bags, the bags,served as a pillow for the egg. The egg did not break because it never,hit the ground. As long as the egg is secured by the gas ?pillows,? it will,not break.

Evaporation Exploration  
Fabrics like cotton can soak up sweat and water, and they dry slowly. So as a person sweats, cotton clothes can become wet and sticky, even heavy?they hold on to the water they soak up. New high-tech fabrics in modern sports clothing are different. They have the ability to pull moisture away from the skin and carry it to the outer surface of the clothing, where it can evaporate more easily and cool you off. In the following activity, students compare the rate of evaporation of water from cotton and a paper towel, which will act like a high-tech fabric.
