Fire Ants : Height to Nutrition

Determine the maximum height at which fire ants would come to get food.Set out different types of food and then measured the height that the fire ants came to get that food.

Imported Fire Ant Control Using Household Products

You can use several types of household products to determine which ones controlled fire ants the best. You can use products such as epsom salt, PeptoBismol®, and oranges. You need to made a transect to determine the initial numbers of fire ants in a mound, then present the household product to the mound. Finally, count the remaining fire ants after exposure to the household product.

Glass Harmonica by Ben Franklin

The science behind it has to do with frequency and vibrations. You could make your own glass harmonica of a sorts by pouring water into a set of glasses. Align them to make a row. Fill each of them with different amounts of water (fill each with a little more water ). And then use a spoon and tap each of them in order. They should make a Do Rei Mi sound.

      How to build rocket?

      Air rockets are those which use power of compressed air (pumped using bicycle pump) for their launching.They are different from conventional rockets which gets supply of thrust force in large part of its flight,instead thrust of a air rocket is completely expended in the first instance of flight.They use initial push from compressed air all in once and can fly about 200 to 300 feet.They are simple to build.  To get more information about them and their working you should visit Nasa's Webpage about air rockets.

      Newton laws as they applied to rockets
      Rocket is a missile that obtain from a thrust engine.It is based on Newton's third law of motion which states that every action has equal and opposite reaction.This thrust can be achieved by various ways but one of the most common technique is compressed air. We have already discussed about it in our Air Rocket Post.
