Welcome to the Home of The
The Science Notebook
is a collection of experiments,
information and demonstrations covering all areas of science
technology, as well as a glimpse into science education of the
past. The ideas and experiments here are all about exploring science
experimenting while having a little fun.
experiments you'll see here have been around for a long
are considered "classics." These are available all over
Internet, and you might wonder why they're here. The
simple. The classics are here simply because they are
They are the experiments that are easy to do and seem to
every time. In some cases, these classics have been around so
long, that the original materials needed to do them are either
longer available, or are very hard to find. Wherever
these have been updated so as to be done with newer equipment
material that is readily available.
demonstrations are new, either because the science behind them
or because there is a newer or simpler way to make something.
You'll also find pages from some of the classic A.C. Gilbert
set manuals. These are not intended to be a source of
to try. Rather, they provide a view of how science was
earlier times. Some of the information you'll find in
books has since been shown to be incorrect. Therefore
be read and appreciated for their historical value, and not as
of current information.
some of what you see here is based on the interests of the
such as the photo at the top of the page. This is a photo of
high-power model rocket built and launched by a friend of the
webmaster. This little beauty was almost two meters tall
launch and used 2 "E" engines!
