Do you know how to stick a skewer through a balloon without popping it? Physics Girl shares five party tricks including the skewered balloon. Then in a second video, she presents the same experiments with scientific explanations. The second video also includes tips for getting the tricks to work better.
- Perform the tricks in class
- Use raisins instead of peanuts; it works better due to the wrinkles and avoids bringing a potential allergen into the lab
- Display the video without the comments appearing, as some contain language not appropriate in the classroom
- First video has no words, and the second provides closed captioning in four languages for ELLs
- Great for having pupils share their science knowledge with younger learners
