Science & Nature
Kids & Family
Everyday science experiments get supersized and turbocharged in this fun children's series that takes learning to a whole new level.
S01:E01 - Rocket Car
Phil builds a balloon powered car in the lab. Then he tries to make one big enough to ride. Can the Science Max build team find a big enough balloon? Or are balloons the way to go? Plus, Newton’s Cradle out of bowling balls, how Guinea Pigs got their name and Newton’s 3rd Law.
S01:E02 - Elastic Energy
Phil starts with a Popsicle stick catapult. Then he uses everything he knows about elastic energy to build a full-size catapult that hurls pumpkins! Plus, a maxed out paddle wheel boat and a historical re-enactment (sort of) of how catapults were used in medieval days.
S01:E03 - Friction
Phil starts with a balloon powered hover disc, then tries to make a maxed out version big enough to ride. In fact, why not make two and then race them! Phil also tries to use the power of friction to climb the walls and even to fly!
S01:E04 - Pasta Bridge
Ever wanted to build a bridge out of pasta? It’s not too hard and works better than you’d think. But what if we were to try to make a pasta bridge big enough for Phil to walk across? Plus, learn how to build a sandcastle you can stand on!
S01:E05 - Magnetic Levitation
Magnets have poles – when you put opposite ones together, they attract. But when you but the same ones together, they repel. Could we find magnets powerful enough to repel each other and float Phil off the ground? Plus, watch magnets defy gravity all on their own.
S01:E06 - Tinfoil Boat
What makes boats float? Tinfoil doesn’t float, but a boat made of tinfoil does. It’s all about how you build it. Watch as Phil builds his human-sized tinfoil boat wrong several times before he figures it out. Plus, Phil gets into a tub full of the main ingredient in diapers. Why would he do such a thing? For Science!
