Have you ever done a science experiment and wondered “What would this be like if it were HUGE?” Welcome to Science Max, the exciting series that turbocharges all the science experiments you’ve done at home.

0:00 – Mousetrap Boat – Building a boat that propels itself with the spring tension of a mousetrap is just the start. How about a long line of rat traps? Propulsion and inertia are powering this episode as Phil explores how to make things – mostly boats – go.

20:06 – Gravity Boat – Phil tries to max-out a boat that propels itself using nothing but water and gravity. We pour over water specifically and fluids in general. Heavy air, fluid sand, Archimedes, and the metric system; this episode overflows with science!

40:13 – Tinfoil Boat – What makes boats float? Tinfoil doesn’t float, but a boat made of tinfoil does. It’s all about how you build it. Watch as Phil builds his human-sized tinfoil boat wrong several times before he figures it out. Plus, Phil gets into a tub full of the main ingredient in diapers. Why would he do such a thing? For Science!

  1. Hello, I was wondering whether you could make a course/list of experiments that could be performed at a school/classroom and would be listed by topic or a science standard (eg KS3, energy experiments, or NGSS energy experiments). Thanks!
