Group Description

For amateur scientists to discover-design-create-invent-innovate-share science fun, toys & games! Learn about out-of-the-box, do-it-yourself experiments & silly science stuff.

Share YOUR "home-brewed" science experiments & Rube Goldberg devices. Send your questions, thoughts, ideas, snips, clips, snaps, scans, links, tales, news, fantasies, dreams, imaginings, & lore for fun with chemistry, physics, geology, botany, astronomy, electronics, engineering, cosmology, light, energy, gravity, quarks, novae, HADRONs & other over-the-edge particle toys.

• Bigger, better, faster, higher water rockets?
• Tesla-coil lightning makers?
• Giant plants grown with giberrellic acid?
• Things to do with a Geiger counter?
• Carbide cannons?
• Darwin-award-winning long-range spud guns?
• Flashpaper fun?
• Potato-battery Ga-As FET lasers?
• Self-heating soup cans?
• Van de Graff generating?
• Bubble and fog machines?

If it's about amateur science, it's "on-topic" here.

Hundreds, even thousands, of incredible devices and experiments have been devised over the last thousand years or so.

Crystal sets, even razor-blade radio receivers. Mason-jar cloud chambers: see atomic radiation from your watch dial, for less than a dollar! Powerful home-built lasers on the cheap. Invisible inks, magicians' flash paper (easy to make, common chemicals!), prankish micro-explosive cigarette loads (VBG), stick-match rockets, coffee-creamer fireballs, fast & easy electroplating of almost anything with pure copper, silver, gold!

Help add to our list, friends. Let's note and comment on these classic science marvels, preserving our heritage here on the Universal & Eternal Digital Bits & Byte Silicon Tablet. PLEASE share your lore, wit & genius!

All languages, and adults & children of all ages welcome, though activities discussed require adult supervision.

If you're curious, ask a question. The only "stupid" questions are those not asked!
