What could get a kid more interested in science than a really cool explosion? There is nothing quite like a visual demonstration of scientific theory to really drive home a point. As a parent I am always interested in ways to keep my kids interested in learning. I find practical application and good explosion is a great way to get kids excited about learning.

In this particular demonstration the professor wants to show the energy that is released when a gas, in this case nitrogen, that has been cooled to a liquid state returns to its gaseous state. Science is really cool, especially when it involves ping pong balls!

What science experiments do you remember from your school days? Did you ever make a baking soda volcano? Share your stories with me, we could turn this website into a great educational platform. Or at least a place where people can watch really cool science experiments.
