Science Experiments

Bubbles can be fun to play with outdoors, but does it seem like they just don't last very long?
Two boys who spend lots of time outdoors, test which level of sunscreen best protects their skin from the harmful effects of the sun's rays.
Make your own illusion, and then see how many people are fooled by it. All you need for this is a piece of paper, a black marker, and a ruler.
For this experiment, you are the scientist. You will record what you observe. Then you will study the data.
