Eric Energy-Interactive Science Shows For Kid's

Kids Zone

Kids Zone Science Experiments

The Eric Energy Team is currently staying at home and staying safe. Of course, we’re looking forward to getting back to you in person soon but, for now, we’d like to keep your curiosity and love of learning going strong.

We’ve created some fun and fascinating videos that will help you pass the time while learning some real science right at home.

Stop in here at the Kid’s Zone often as we continue showing some cool experiments and activities featuring Eric Energy and some very special surprise guests.

Indoor Lightning

This video actually shows you electricity in action! Eric Energy, using a Tesla Coil, holds the power of lightning right in his hands as he sparks up the room in a very colorful way. The Tesla Coil was invented in 1891 by Nikola Tesla. It turns 120 volts of electricity into 50,000 volts!

Vortex Generator

You’ll really have some fun making your own little vortex generator (aerodynamic device) out of some handy household items. Once you make your own, you’ll feel the force of air that you’ve generated and can even create some fog rings for fun.


This do-it-yourself home experiment allows you to play with homemade bubbles as you’ve never done before. You can even try juggling them, like Eric’s cool assistant, Max Energy, does right in this video! The skin of a bubble is very fragile. It'll pop easily with grooves in our skin. When a cloth is used, air is kept between the cloth and bubble making it last longer.

Polymer Balls

Eric Energy and his assistant show you the wonders of Polymer Balls. You'll learn about long chained molecules and uses for these growing pieces of plastic. You'll also see some cool and easy experiments you can do at home with your own polymer balls.
