Science teacher Steve Spangler has appeared on a variety of television shows, including regular appearances on Denver, Colorado's KUSA 9 News and a number of guest appearances on Ellen. On this YouTube channel, which might especially appeal to elementary school teachers, after-school teachers, and youth workers (as well as anyone young at heart), visitors can check out these short, televised lab activities. Many of these experiments can be replicated in a classroom. For example, in one recent video, Color Milk Explosion, Spangler demonstrates how one can create a gorgeous marbling pattern using milk, food coloring, and a cotton ball soaked with dish soap. Why? Dish soap is attracted to the fat in the milk, causing the food coloring in the milk to move. Other videos in this collection are not appropriate for reproducing in the classroom (in fact, one playlist is entitled "Don't try this at home!"), but can be enjoyed from afar.
