Junior scientist Hayley demonstrates how to make a lava lamp using a clear drinking glass, vegetable oil, salt, water and some food colouring. Because salt is denser than both the oil and water, dropping it into the cup makes the floating oil wrapped around the particles as they make their way to the bottom of the glass. Once at the bottom the salt begins to dissolve, allowing the oil to move back to the top of the water, creating a fun lava-like reaction.

Junior scientist Caleb shows us how to make a simple device to measure rainfall. You'll need a 2L plastic bottle, modelling clay, a ruler and a maker. Measuring rain helps us understand seasonal changes, provide better forecasts and study patterns in our weather. The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) is Australia's national weather, climate and water agency. By measuring rain, the BoM can tell us about rainfall across the country and assist Australians dealing with drought, floods and storms.

Join junior scientist Ana as she guides us through building a small-scale hydroponic system for growing herbs and salad greens. All you need to follow along is a 2L soda bottle, string, perlite (amorphous volcanic rock), hydroponic fertiliser, the seedling you'd like to grow, and sunlight. Using a hydroponic system substitutes soil for a nutrient-rich water-based solution that allows the plants to photosynthesise efficiently in a compact environment.
