Valentine’s Science Experiments!


[Shared by Science Sparks]

Valentine’s day is almost upon us, so today I have a selection of HEART based investigations.



You could make a Stethoscope and listen to a friends heart beating.




Find out what happens to your pulse rate after exercise and how fast it returns to normal.

Explore respiration by making a pizza.

How about learning about melting, by making these melt and pour soaps from Red Ted Art.

Red Ted Art also has a fantastic post about making candle wicks.



The Imagination Tree has some lovely Spin Art Cards. I’ll come back and explain the science behind these very soon.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team

Got it!
