The D.I.Y. Science series contains some of our favourite experiments for kids to try at home. They are designed to help school teachers and carers inspire a child’s curiosity in science. It’s time to get hands-on.
This episode shows students how to make their own pet squid that can dive.
It is best suited to Years 7 and 8 Physics students and senior Chemistry and Physics students who are learning about pressure, density and buoyancy.
