FWS – Growing Manchester Bacteria

October 15, 2011 // 3 Comments

For fun myself and Laura my housemate went around Manchester swabbing it. We then grew our samples on agar to see what disgusting things we could get to grow and who was more disgusting out of the two of us. I filmed this mid thesis writing and you can really see how tired and fat I [...]

FWS – DNA Extraction in Your Kitchen

October 8, 2011 // 2 Comments

In this experiment I extract DNA from the cells of strawberries using a home made extraction kit. The experiment is perfect for any young scientist and introduces the concept of DNA extraction with in-depth explanation of the hands-on scientific procedure. All materials and equipment are inexpensive, easy to find and safe to use at home.   Introduction to DNA In 1953, using x-ray diffraction data collected by Rosalind Franklin, James D. Watson and Francis Crick proposed the double helix [...]

Proving Homeopathy Wrong in Your Kitchen

Another vid on homeopathy with home experiments proving that there is nothing in it. In this vid I show how nitric acid reacts with copper metal and forms copper (II) nitrate solution and nitrogen dioxide and how to make a simple pH indicator. Music (Adventures in your Sleep by dummeh) BREAST CANCER and [...]

FWS – Doing SCIENCE! With Ferrofluid

June 19, 2011 // 2 Comments

One of the most fun experiments that can be performed at home! Ferrofluid is a magnetic liquid that takes the shape of the magnetic field applied to it and can be used to visualize magnetic fields. This experimental explains how a ferrofluid can be made multiple ways by using simple household items. Introduction to Ferrofluid It is generally difficult to make a magnetic liquid because once you melt a magnetic material (for example iron) it will no longer be magnetic. This is because the melting [...]
