The Exploratorium is the museum of science, art and human perception in San Francisco. Since most of us live far from the museum, they have a section called "Snacks". However, they're not the kind you eat. They're the kind you can learn from and have fun with. Exploratorium Science Snacks are miniature versions of some of the most popular exhibits at the Exploratorium.

These "snaks" are short experiments that can easily be presented as demo in your classroom. They require material that is very easy to find. They include perception experiments as well as physics and earth science experiments. Students can explore colours, mirrors, Bernoulli's principle, blind spot, center of gravity, magnetism, resonance, electroscope, geyser, batteries, pendulums, peripheral vision, pinhole camera, resonators, spectra, motors, vectors and many more. Each experiment includes material, assembly steps, what to do and notice and an explanation of what is going on.
