Have you ever noticed that you float better in the ocean than in a swimming pool? This is because the salt in the ocean makes the water more dense. Why not try out this simple experiment to show your kids how to float an egg in water using the power of salt! #science #experiment #summer #beach #nanogirl #sciencewithkids

Make beautiful shower cakes for someone special this Christmas, using the science of crosslinking! How does it work? When you add the gelatin to the hot water, the gelatin molecules stretch out into long noodle-like strands. Then, while your shower cakes are in the fridge, the molecules get cold and curl up into a ball. As they curl up, some of the strands get tangled up together in a process called crosslinking, and those tangles hold the shower cake together as a solid. This fun activity is just one of the 50 science recipes included in the @kitchensciencecookbook (another great #christmasgiftidea ! ) 🎄 #scienceforkids #scienceforchildren #homemadegifts #christmasgiftsideas #kitchenscience #scienceathome

So many people have told us that the Airzooka experiment was their favourite from the Nanogirl Live! shows. So, with help from our tour sponsors @vodafonenz @uoaengineering and @macdiarmidinsti , Nanogirl and Boris are here to show you how you can engineer your own Airzooka at home! #scienceforkids #scienceathome #nanogirl #soundwaves #upcycle #nz #experiment #engineeringforkids #engineeringathome #nanogirllive #stem #stemeducation #stemeducationforkids

Did you know you communicate every day using waves? Not just 👋, sound and light waves are how we see and hear other people around us. 🗣️👂 When we want to communicate with someone further away, we use radio waves to do the same thing through our mobile phones 📲 They're all waves, just with different frequencies! With a little help from a skipping rope and Nanogirl Live! platinum sponsor @vodafonenz we've got a cool experiment to show how waves work in our Nanogirl Live! Bring on the Noise show! 🙌 If you're in #Auckland on Saturday, come along to the final show of the tour to see this in action, plus heaps more cool experiments too! #aucklandforkids #aucklandevents

It's #socialenterpriseday and we are proud to be a business that does well by doing good. As a social enterprise whenever you purchase something from us, from Nanogirl Live! tickets to science items in our shop to Kitchen Science Cookbooks, you help to make science accessible for those in our communities who would otherwise miss out. We want to make STEM learning accessible for everyone, everywhere, and we do this by using some of our profits to help cover the costs for those who need it. Whether it's delivering free science assembly shows for low decile schools, running STEM camps for girls in Fiji, or bringing our bilingual science show Mātātoa to rural communities that often miss out, we work tirelessly in pursuit of our mission and none of it would be possible without your support. #socialenterprise #stemeducation #scienceforkids #accessforall

WOW, we have been absolutely blown away by the support we've had for our Nanogirl Live! Bring on the Noise NZ tour. We've met some amazing young people along the way, and had so many parents tell us the show has inspired a new-found love of science for their kids! 👩‍🔬👨‍🔬 A HUGE thank you to our platinum sponsor @vodafonenz , our Academic Partner @uoaengineering , and our Science Partner @macdiarmidinsti for helping us to make this all possible. We've been performing at the #tsbshowplace in New Plymouth today, where we not only be performing to another enthusiastic crowd, we've also given a 'touch tour' for visually impaired children to get a feel for the experiments and the equipment we use in the show. #accessforall #nanogirllive Photo credit: Paul Davis
