Welcome to the "Old School Science Demonstration!" website. The video science demonstrations at this site are designed to be watched by you, the educator or parent. We encourage you to watch the video lessons and then conduct the demonstrations with the student/children in your care.

New video lessons will be added, so check back often! Please post comments at http://sdpb.org/ScienceIQ. We would like to know how the students/children reacted to the demonstrations. Please provide ideas or hints on how to make the demonstrations better!

Demonstrations Dissections

Physical Science Demo : Liquid Flax
A simple density activity/lesson that demonstrates items can sink or float in materials other than water. (Density is the amount of stuff (matter) in an object. Density = mass/volume (d = m/v))

Physical Science Demo : Tablecloth vs Inertia
This is an awesome activity/lesson that demonstrates inertia (1st Law of Motion) and/or impulse. The classic and magical "pull the tablecloth from under the food demo."

Corpus Callosum
A cool activity used to test if your corpus callosum (the part of the brain that connects the right and left hemisphere) is connected. Your students/kids will love this one!

Bernoulli's Ball
This is a twist of the classic Ping-Pong ball/hairdryer demonstration used to show Bernoulli's Principle. A leaf blower replaces the hairdryer and a beach ball replaces the Ping-Pong ball. This is amazing to watch.

Bernoulli's (air) Sound Tube
This classic science demonstration shows both Bernoulli's Principle and resonance. A corrugated tube is twirled producing sound. Air moves from an area of high pressure to an area of low pressure.

Bernoulli's TP
During this classic science demonstration toilet paper is used to show Bernoulli's Principle. A moving stream of air produces an area of low pressure. Air moves from high pressure to low pressure.

Bernoulli's Flight/Lift
During this lab/demonstration you will use a Styrofoam airplane to explain lift, and then the students will construct paper airplanes and compete in a paper airplane throwing contest.
