The Magic Chemicals

Here's an experiment I've never tried, but sounds really cool. Get 3 8 foot strings of yarn, 3 drinking straws , 2 identical plastic bottles, a balloon, baking soda and vinegar, and diet coke and mentos. First tape the bottles to the straws. Tape them any horizontally and put the vinegar and diet coke in. Blow the balloon and hold it. Tape the string ends to the floor and ceiling, and put the baking soda into the vinegar and put the cap on, and put the straw upsideow

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car

I made a car that was sun powered but since the sun wasn't out during the science fair I thought I'd make it a hydrogen fuel cell car. I got an A+ and an environmentalist came and thought that it was a great idea! She said,''this is a great idea for the future'' and ''it would help stop Global Warming from hurting polar bears'' as I had said in my speech. Sorry that was very long but it was really fun and my time was well spent!:):):)

Shape and attraction by simularity

After doing some work with different magnets I have found that both shape and conduction of magnetism has to do with attraction in stainless steel. Having a hole in the stainless with a magnet with a hole, creates a simularity. Touching a magnet with stainless also allows for a bond. A closed loop on top of a bowl some how stops attraction, but not a flattened one. A kitchen sink made of stainless can attract and repail and cause rotation of a center hung magnet with both a hole and connection to another stainless peice. If you have even one medal screw in it the magnet will stick anywhere. If not connection varies from shapes and being inside or outside of the shapes. Strange but true, shape does matter in magnetic attraction when working with stainless!
