Bella from Walkerville Primary School demonstrates how to make your own lava lamp, recreating the colourful display using oil as a separator for the two states of liquid: ice and water. Unlike most liquids, water becomes less dense as it freezes allowing it to float in the oil while the water sinks. To make the lava lamp, you will need water, food dye, ice trays, oil, tongs and a tall transparent container.

Junior scientist Elizabeth uses chemistry to create sherbet and get those tastebuds tingling. The fizzy reaction occurs when the acid-carbonate in the sherbet comes into contact with our saliva, causing a chemical reaction, while the sweet-sour explosion is created by the presence of citric acid and sugar on our taste receptors. To make your own, you'll need baking soda, citric acid, icing sugar, jelly crystals a zip lock bag, two cups, four small bowls and a teaspoon.
