Do you love balloons? Of course. Who doesn’t! Here are 5 fun science project ideas that you can do with balloons. You can do these projects at home for fun and even learn some basic of science behind ir. Or you could use them for your science exhibits and fairs in school later. Good luck ballooning!

 

1. Balloon Rocket! Newton’s Third Law of Motion.

Teaches About: Physics

Difficulty Level: Medium

Messiness Level: Low

Physics is FUN but also hard to understand sometimes. In this video you can learn how a balloon rocket demonstrates Newton’s Third Law of Motion. Get ready to learn how every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

 

2. Three Simple Handmade Toys from Balloons.

Teaches About: Physics

Difficulty Level: Low

Messiness Level: High

We all love playing with our toys! How about making one for yourself or the younger one today? You can use these simple instructions of making handmade toys in your backyard with very simple easy to find materials. This one also demonstrates Newton’s Third Law of Motion but through toy making. Have fun Making!

 

3. Magical Experiments with Balloons

Teaches About: Physics

Difficulty Level: Medium

Messiness Level: Low

Magic is just science that we don’t understand yet! All the young magicians out there, this might be interesting to you all perform a magic and also understand the science behind it. These magical experiments shows us how the air all around us is pressing down, even though its invisible.

 

4. Proving Air has Mass: Balloon Experiments

Teaches About: Physics

Difficulty Level: Medium

Messiness Level: Low

Air is the sea of particles in which we live. Wrapped around us like a blanket, we sometimes mistake air as being without mass or weight. This easy balloon demonstration proves that air does indeed have mass!

 

5. Hot Air Balloon Project

Teaches About: Physics

Difficulty Level: Medium

Messiness Level: Medium

You may have seen big hot air balloons going up into the sky. In this experiment you will learn exactly what makes the balloon rise and fall. And find out how a pilot is able to control it! A great experiment to watch the effects of hot air and cold air in a balloon.

Keep Learning! 🙂
