On this page, you will find a list of fun experiments and demonstrations that are suitable for a school science lab or possible at home. Do not assume that everything is safe! Most will have some sort of safety advice on the page but the absence of written precautions does not mean that you can just go and play ahead. If you are an adult, you should use your own judgement and common sense. If you are a minor (child), it is highly recommended that you should ask for more advice and help from your teachers and parents.
