Welcome to an awesome Science-At-Home fun activity where you’ll have some fun making spooky sounds and learning about the “science of sound.” It’s all about inertia, sound and vibration in this cool kit.

  • Get hands-on with science at home
  • Learn about centripetal force and the science of sound
  • A memorable & attention grabbing lab, both visually and audibly
  • A fun science activity to stay engaged with learning at home

How It Works: Thanks to the laws of inertia and some centripetal motion, the penny flips up on its edge and spins around the inside of the balloon. However, try substituting one of our hex nuts for the penny and you get a screaming balloon! The unique shape of the hex nut vibrates the walls of the balloon to produce a wonderfully annoying sound.

What’s Included:
  • 12 clear, latex balloons
  • 8 zinc hex nuts
  • Step-by-step activity guide
