These science experiments help children to develop proper understanding of science, creativity and innovative ideas as a result of which they are able to relate to the things around them. Science experiments like these are pretty easy to conduct and involve use of common household items that we usually find at our home. To perform these science experiments successfully kids need to follow the instructions properly.

While conducting these science experiments children need to take certain precautionary measures and use safety equipments such as safety goggles, cloak, gloves, etc., to prevent any kind of injury or accident. The important thing to keep in mind is to perform these science experiments under the supervision of an adult. One of the most popular science experiments is the Match Lift science experiment. In this article we will discuss about this experiment.
In order to perform this Match Lift science experiment all you need is a matchbox with matchsticks. First of all remove all the matchsticks from the matchbox. Now lay these matchsticks on the table in a symmetrical form. Take the case of matchbox and hold it between your lips. Now lower it over the matchsticks that have been place over the table and draw a deep breath. Soon you will be amazed to see that the matchsticks will hang to the bottom part of matchbox case and as soon as you release the breath, these matchsticks will fall down. This happens because when you draw breath the air in the case gets reduced due to which the air pressure makes the matchsticks stick to the lower part of case.
You might have noticed that the Match Lift science experiment is quite easy to carry out and does not require much effort at all. Children can try this experiment at their home and show it to their friends or family members.
