Bookseller Inventory ST Seller Inventory ST Book Description Quarry Books, New Book. What was the impetus for that? Heinecke: When my kids were little, I did a childcare swap with a friend every Wednesday. To fill the time with something other than crayons, I found some safe, classic science experiments online and modified them to use ingredients I had around the house. I was as excited as the kids were.
When was that and why did you decide to share your science experiments online?
See a Problem?
Soon I realized that there were a million craft blogs, but parents were hungry for safe, easy science experiments to do with their kids. I jumped at the chance to share something I love, and started KitchenPantryScientist. Heinecke: No. Blogging is a great way to practice. Heinecke: The blog was not an immediate success by any stretch of the imagination.
I used to get really excited to get 30 hits in one day. CB: Do you design your own experiments? And how do you decide which experiments to include on the blog? Heinecke: Most of the experiments I do are variations on classic experiments. I try to make them safer, easier, quicker, or rework the ingredients to include things many people have around the house. Often people will tell me about a fun experiment they did as a child, or saw online, and then my kids and I try it out. My kids and I concocted a few experiments of our own as well. A popular one is Frankenworms , which uses the classic baking soda and vinegar chemical reaction to make thin slivers of candy worms float around and wiggle.

Another colorful, decorative diffusion experiment we came up with combines science and art to illustrate diffusion. Heinecke: Yes! It seems like a good, safe way to demonstrate how scientists separate DNA fragments using electrophoresis. Let me know if you have any ideas. Did that stem from the blog?
Heinecke: Yes. I started following some local news people on Twitter, and a morning news anchor named Kim Insley liked what I was doing on my blog, so she asked me to come demonstrate some experiments.
