Walking Rainbow

Everyone loves a good rainbow! In this experiment, we made a rainbow out of water, paper towels, and just three colors. You will have to wait about 48 hours to see the full rainbow, but beautiful things take time!

Speed up your Spin

In this blog post, we’re putting our own spin on the physics behind ballerinas. All you’ll need is a swivel chair, two heavy objects, and a friend to give you a helpful push. Give this a try and see if you feel like a ballerina yourself!

Straw Boats

 The weather is heating up here in Austin, and we’re excited to get outside and play with water. This experiment allows us to do just that as we work as engineers to design a boat using just a few materials. Our challenge is to see just how many pennies our boat can support. Try this one outside on a sunny day!
