Melting SALT in a Furnace

Hey guys, I’m Nate welcome back to the dome where today! We’re gonna be doing some experiments using salt and seeing what happens if we melt it down in our foundry some other channels have already Done some experiments using molten salt, and I figured it was our turn to give it a shot so […]

Flame Thrower made from Moss Spores!

Check it out Isn’t that awesome This is something we don’t get to use in the chemistry lab all the time because it’s a biological organism. This is called Lycopodium and it’s a moss Spore it’s the seeds from the moss, so this is like a podium growing in a field You can see the […]

Don’t Build a Metal Foundry Until you See This First

Okay, what’s up guys today? Today I’m out here with my mini metal foundry because we’re celebrating a milestone. The video on melting Pop cans has reached over thirteen and a half million views and over one hundred thousand likes. Now when I first made the metal foundry I had no idea that so many […]

Melting Marbles With Electricity

Hey guys We’re back today with another experiment that I’m personally excited about and been looking forward to for a couple of months I went picked up a couple of bags of marbles from the Dollar store And I’m bringing it back my mini Arc Furnace because I’d like to bring the two together and […]

Melting Cans With The Mini Metal Foundry

Today we’re going to be making muffins. But trust me, this is one recipe you won’t be able to find in the kitchen cookbook. In this project we’re using backyard science, and a bucket full of soda cans, to make a batch, of mini metal biscuits. Let’s start this project with the mini metal foundry […]

What Conducts Electricity?

Hi, I am Jared, and welcome to Fun Science Demonstrations for Young Learners. A little message, Morse code, are you getting it? Our big idea today is that electricity needs a path to follow and sometimes that path is easy to follow, and sometimes it is not so easy. Some things conduct electricity and some […]

Convert Your Backyard Foundry To Propane! (“Gas Blaster” Propane Torch)

In this video I’m going to show you how to build a fire breathing “Gas Blaster” torch from simple, and common materials. This homemade jet torch shoots a steady, and adjustable flame, that gets hot enough to melt metal. Which means, now you can dodge the challenges of charcoal, by powering your foundry, on propane. […]

How To Turn Styrofoam, Into Solid Aluminum

For this video, I’m going to show you how to convert something made of styrofoam, into something made of solid aluminum, using common play sand, and a little bit of magic. Start with some foam board from the dollar store and peel the paper layers off the top and the bottom. Now draw, or print […]

How To Make An Electrical Arc Furnace

Chances are you’ve thrown these things in the trash without even knowing it. But if you use them like this, they’ll spawn an electric arc hot enough to melt any metal known to man, and even turn rocks into lava. In this project we’re modifying a fire brick and some flashlight batteries, to build an […]
