Sean Ragan – Laser Projection Microscope

Contributing MAKE writer and blog MVP Sean Ragan joins us via Skype to demonstrate his laser projection microscope. The simple apparatus dangles a drop of pond water in front of a high power laser to turn a dark room into a microbial movie theater.

Demonstration from the Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments

Becky dons her lab coat to demonstrate the production of hydrogen and oxygen by electrolysis of water (with the help of a 9V battery). You can tell the difference between the two gases by the way they burn.
