Edible/Inedible Experiments Archive

On this form you can submit experiments to be added to the MadSci Edible/Inedible Experiments Archive. If you have useful images or other multimedia that will help explain the experiment, contact webadmin@www.madsci.org and we will arrange for means by which images can be transferred to our site.

What's worth adding? Experiments should be something that K-12 students (ages 5-18) can attempt at home or within a school lab. The experiment should be *fun* and the results interesting and useful for explaining or understanding specific concepts in science. Things can be as simple as finding and understanding what a pulse is to generating electricity with a potatoe.
