Experiments

The stage show consists of miracle and magic-like experiments which are purely based upon scientific principles. Show runs for 2 to 3 hours and the audience is spellbound and enchanted. This show will help in a long way to cultivate the scientific concepts in the minds of students (right from KG to PG).

Most of the instruments and apparatus are designed, fabricated/assembled in the home laboratory and workshop. The experiments are low cost and are easy to repeat/reproduce.

There are more than 30 experiments broadly categorized into following groups. The sequence in which the experiments are shown however, is dynamic.

Mechanics

  • Newton’s cradle (elastic collisions)
  • Demonstration of simple experiments based on Newton’s laws
  • Centrifugal and centripetal force
  • Law of conservation of angular momentum
  • Equilibrium and center of mass
  • Gyroscope
  • Archemede’s Principle
  • Circular motion in vertical plane
  • Ultrasonic atomizer
  • Siphon tube
  • Laws of motion (freely falling bodies)
  • Bernoulli’s principle

Light

  • Convex and concave lenses (ray diagrams)
