We all must have been asked about our weight at least once in our life time in application forms or by people. All of us on this planet have got either the answer wrong! 50 kg or 100 kg is not our weight but our mass! Our weight is measured in Newton and is 9.8 times the mass!
Gravitation is a natural phenomenon by which all things with mass or energy including planets, stars, galaxies, and even light are brought towards one another. It is the reason why an apple always falls down rather than go up, a ball thrown in air comes back down.
Let’s understand the principle of gravitation, make a spring balance and verify Archimedes principle in this fun and exciting DIY Kit!
Can you imagine a life without fans, lights, mobile phones, laptops etc.? All of them work on electricity. Electricity is perhaps the most important discovery in science that paved to all the other amazing tools, gadgets and inventions in the modern era.
Learn about electricity in this fun and exciting DIY Kit as we build our very own Rheostat, build series and parallel circuits, and verify ohm’s law!
How many of you out there love science experiments? They are interesting right!
Want to try out some experiments in your backyard? Butterfly Edufields brings you a 4 in 1 chemistry kit which helps you understand some basic chemistry stuff like pH, titration, indicators & types of changes.
Have you seen magicians sleeping on a bed of needles and wondered why it does not hurt them? Why do some objects float while others sink in water? The answer lies in the pressure exerted & the relationship between force and area.
Let’s build our very own Hydraulic Jack, Shooter & Magic Bed and understand the relationship between pressure, force and area in this fun and exciting DIY Kit!
The fact that we can see the objects around us is due to the property of reflection. Plants are green because they reflect green light and absorb the rest!Have you ever wondered how animations worked?In this fun and exciting DIY Kit let’s explore the properties of light and understand the concepts of Persistence of Vision, Reflection &Dispersion of Light!
The concept of Light has boggled the scientific community for many years due to its unique property of exhibiting dual nature i.e. light behaves both as a particle and a wave!With this fun and exciting DIY kit let’s understand some of the properties of light with seven awesome activities.
Explore the properties of light by building your very own Pinhole Camera & Periscope!
Can you imagine a life without fans, lights, mobile phones, laptops etc.? All of them work on electric current (electricity). That’s not all! Electric current can be used to produce magnets, heat objects, produce light and much more. These are the effects of electric current! But what’s the science behind it? How does electricity make so much possible?
With this fun and exciting DIY kit let’s see explore the effects of electric current as we build an electromagnetic crane and perform other exciting activities!
Have you ever thought about how the clothes that we made are made? Before the clothes end up in our closets they go through a number of steps like fibre extraction, weaving, dyeing, cutting, sewing etc. Clothes can be made from a variety of materials!
With this fun and exciting DIY kit let’s understand the entire process of making clothes right from the types of materials used to thread making and ultimately cloth making
We use simple machines everyday! Knifes, needles, screw driver, door handles, bottle openers are all examples of simple machines! All simple machines are recognised to fall under one of the six categories: wheel & axle, lever, pulley, wedge, inclined plane & screw.
Simple everyday items like stapler, scissors etc. to complex systems like cycles, robots etc. are all combinations of these simple machines in complex ways
Let’s explore two simple machines (wheel & axle, pulley) and one compound machine (gear) in this fun and exciting DIY kit!
Ever heard about Maglev trains and wondered how they move in the air? Why does the compass always seem to point in one direction only? The answer lies in the properties of magnets. The discovery of Magnetism dates back to ancient time, when people first noticed that load stones (Naturally occurring magnetized ore) attracted iron pieces. Since then magnets have been used in many applications like speakers, dump yards, Generators, maglev trains etc.
In this fun and exciting DIY Kit let’s explore the properties of magnets as we build our very magnetic levitation device, magneto tracer and a compass!
Rainwater harvesting is simply the storage and accumulation of rain water for future use. It can be collected on building roofs and other hard surfaces. Only 3% of water is available for use by humans. With depleting ground water resources, increasing population and fluctuating climate, Rain Water Harvesting can go a long way to help mitigate these effects.
Let’s make a model of rainwater harvesting system for flat and tilted roofs with this fun and exciting DIY kit!
• Build a model with a light source, object and screen to understand:
→How shadows are formed?
→Know the effect of changing object distance on size of the shadow formed.
• Build a model to see how change in angle of light changes the length of the shadow formed.
• Identify the shape of the object by seeing its shadow.
