What is creativity? For starters, to be creative, you do not have to be a math or a science wiz. All you need is an inquisitive mind and a very vivid imagination. Your online source for information and advice for inventors of all ages.Special section for Kid Inventors.
While listening to lessons on Electrochemistry, many students may wonder why it was ever invented, if it was really ever necessary to invent it and if the world would be better off without it. With the small experiments that follow, we hope to make peace between these students and the study of Electrochemistry. These fun and simple experiments can teach the fundamental concepts of Electrochemistry without asking much of the student.
Experiments Archive at The Mad Scientist
Herein lie a series of experiments demonstrating concepts in different branches of science. Some may be eaten before, during or after the experiment, and some definitely should not be eaten at all.
Home Experiments
This collection of experiments will add joy to your science experience. Share the fun of scientific experimentation with friends or family members. Safety comes first. Be sure to follow each instruction carefully.

The Science Talent Search (STS), is often considered the "Nobel Prize" science competition for U.S. high school seniors, is being sponsored by Intel Corporation and Science Service a nonprofit organization based in Washington, D.C., that has for the past 75 years promoted public understanding and appreciation of science through publications, outreach programs and science education programs.
The Society for Amateur Scientist's
Dr. Shawn Carlson, writes Scientific American magazine's "The Amateur Scientist" column. (As of the November, 1995 issue.) Scientific American limits its columns to just 1200 words. Since it is impossible to fully detail any novel scientific project in such constrained space, SAS and Scientific American now provide additional details about each project on-line.
Twinkies Project
T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. is a series of experiments conducted during finals week, 1995, at Rice University. The tests were designed to determine the properties of that incredible food, the Twinkie. T.W.I.N.K.I.E.S. stands for Tests With Inorganic Noxious Kakes In Extreme Situations.
