I know this will involve a lot of work, but would it be possible to have a section dedicated to the kitchen science experiments?

I have an 8 year old daughter who is very keen on science experiments and running out of things for her to do, and most stuff on the web revolves around volcanoes......

Dave (daveshorts) is working on a major revamp of the website. As part of that there will be a kitchen science section.. so yes, every chance I think.

Hi Paul

Rosy is spot on. There will be a dedicated section of the new site (due out next month), containing all the kitchen sciences we ever done.

All the ones we have ever done will probably take longer than the rest of the site, but there will certainly be lots there when the new site goes live.

It should be really cool.. Maybe some things geared toward my preschoolers too. YAYYYYYYYY! They love science.... and doing things that they can visually see helps them learn and remember how things work... I love it too, as I am the least scientific minded person around, so I will greatly benifit from this myself!

Well, you must be a good teacher Karen. I went to a good school and science was presented in such a boring way, experiments without much emphasis on the explinations for the result. Science and Mathermatics should be the most enjoyable of all lessons.

KITCHEN SCIENCE - Why sodium street lights make things look orange
on the 18th of february 2007.

For those of you who did this kitchen science experiment; Try repeating the experiment with a cd or dvd, try it under all colours of street lights and even neon sign displays. oh, go on...

Thanks, Dave.

I should have mentioned that it should be a blank disc, and not one that has data on it.

I have only tried it with a blank disc, and my thinking is that the blank CD or DVD is smooth as opposed to the one that has data written on it which has all of those peeks and troths.

Then again you could use a blank and a non-blank disc and compare the two results
