Science Fair Project for Fifth and Fourth Graders

Here's a Science Fair Project that my fifth grade niece performed.  The materials are easily available and not at all difficult to find. The experiment is exciting and interesting, not to mention easy. So easy that she was able to share the trick with a lot of her friends and classmates and they were able to perform the experiment a couple more times long after the Science fair was over.

baking soda, balloon, water, vinegar, funnel

With a marker, draw a line on the narrow-mouth bottle to indicate an inch and another inch on top of the first.

Label the lines with WATER on top, and VINEGAR on the bottom.
Pour vinegar all the way to the first line.

Then add water until it reach the second line.

Your concoction should look something like this.

Now fill one-half of a deflated balloon with  BAKING SODA 

Without spilling the baking soda, stretch the opening of the balloon on the mouth of the narrow-necked bottle. 

When balloon is securely attached to the opening of the bottle, release the baking soda inside the bottle

Watch as the mixture slowly inflates the balloon

See the powerful reaction when you mix water, vinegar and baking soda.

Baking soda particles settle in the mouth of the bottle

Amazing huh! Now, it's your turn to try it!

Good luck and Keep safe!

Working from Home

Thanks for the article from Jermaine Haynes

My uncle has worked for a major company for many years and had a pretty high level position. When the economy started going bad, his company gave him the option to retire early with a pretty good pension. My uncle decided to take the offer and retire early. He thought it would be better to go ahead and do that now than wait around and see if he might get laid off with downsizing later. He decided to open his own consulting business and work out of his house in Rockford, Illinois. My aunt decided to quit her job and work with his as his assistant. His business has become pretty productive, and now he had to hire a couple more people to keep up with everything. This involved having to purchase a lot of expensive computer equipment that he kept in his house. Once he bought the equipment, he had to get a security system from ADT Security Rockford because he did not want to risk someone breaking in and stealing everything that he had invested so much money into. I am considering going to work for him because he has made me an offer that I don’t think I can refuse. My kids are in school now, and we could certainly use the extra money.
