Hi, my name is Bean. I love science. On this page I’m going to post some science experiments my friends and I have done or are working on.

If you love science like I do and would like to share some of your own experiments, feel free to write about them in the comments box below.

Science Fair Project (by Monkey)

My question was, what kind of fruit makes the best slushy? To get my hypothesis I had my family taste six kinds of fruit: banana, blackberry, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, and peach. Strawberry and blueberry were the favorites. I chose strawberry for my hypothesis.

To prove which is best I decided to test three things: cost, taste, time. I went to the store, bought the fruit, and wrote down the cost. Then I made the slushies with my parents. I timed it. Then had my family taste them.

I did the experiment twice. the first time peach won. the second time blackberry won. Both times strawberry came in second place. This made strawberry first over all.

    So in chemistry the other day we were doing this experiment. It was fun. We took 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and mixed it with 3 tablespoons of water. After stirring it till i twas smooth we let it sit for 5 minutes. Then we slowly pushed our fingers into the mixture then jabbed them into the mixture. When we slowly jabbed it in the mixture stuck to our finger. When we jabbed at it our fingers wouldn’t go through it at all. Then we took a handful of the mixture and had to quickly roll it into a ball. When we squeezed the ball it was liek dough then when we released the ball it turned back into a liquid.
