Kitchen Science

Science funRoger Highfield has a nice article, Dr Roger's Home Experiments, on the Daily Telegraph site, with videos showing six experiments which can be performed at home:
The non-popping balloon (latent heat capacity of water)
Defying gravity (lifting a person)
Measuring the speed of light (microwaves)
The imploding can (make a vacuum)
The great toothpaste challenge (high speed toothpaste)
The food that won't go mouldy (enzymes in eggs)
"A good experiment is more than educational. It can be compelling, uplifting and inspirational too."
