What's a "lolly"? And what does it have to do with hands-on science? Find out at this beautifully-done site from 'Down Under' presenting interesting science concepts in a kid-appealing way -- including how to make a 'soda-fountain' from a bottle of soda and a bunch of those lollies...or salt...or sugar. The best part is the excellent video clip in which a charming Australian teenage lass demonstrates, in her Aussie accent, the messy appeal of the concept. There is also a printable explanation of the physics involved. This is just one of many fascinating science-oriented topics on this site. Your students will love this place.
