Stand well back and make some noise for 1000 STEM!

in #geeks-contest3 years ago

Record a short video of you creating a bang and include the tags #science and #geeks-contest for massive profitssssssssss.


The best lessons for me at school were the science classes in which the instructor was making something explode. I remember one day, the chemistry teacher donning his safety glasses and putting a perspex wall between us and a dish of water.

Pffft, water? Where's the fire dude, this is gonna be lame.

The first element he added fizzed a bit.

The second one fizzed a lot and popped.

The third one he dropped in was Potassium, at arms length, and in less than a second it seemed to jump out of the tray and a bang accompanied a white flash.

Do it again!!!

I'm not allowed, that stuff is expensive.

For the chance to win 1000 STEM (which could well be doubled if we get some engagement here), make something go pop - the louder the better!

  • Short video (youtube, 3speak, dtube, etc), a quick intro to what materials you have if not obvious
  • Loudest pop/bang/reaction has the best chance of winning
  • Lots of votes for decent efforts
  • Extra points for safety goggles
  • Use #science and #geeks-contest so I can find your post
  • Don't blow yourself up please, be safe and professional!

Good luck!



Fun! Haha, what an interesting contest!!

I thought so, as long as we get some entrants!

An empty bag of chips/crisps
Throw something out the window
Burn some rubbish and 'accidentally' place a tin of soup on the top
Inflate a football with a machine pump

Lots of options :)

So um, what was the result of this?

No entrants, 1000 STEM for me :)

Ahh sadness.

There's always next time.

Oh...this will be good.

I hope more folks join this contest, people in the STEM tribe are always looking for good stuff to vote on.

Might have been a bit bold asking for a 10 second phone video, but this contest is currently level-pegging with the Sports on at 0-0 :D

I forgot there's a sports one, I need to check that out.

Do this one!

At this rate, popping an empty bag of crisps(chips?) is going to collect the prize :)

I like my kitchen clean.

You could always eat the contents first? :D

No entrants, no winners. I'm powering up the 1000 STEM and might run another contest in the future when STEEM and STEM are mooning.

I always like bed watching others do the experiments from the safe distance, now I'm doing my own experiments and so far I'm enjoying their simple, uncomplicated nature 😁 no not cooking that is too complicated 😂 I'm talking about indoor gardening 😉

Sounds like it will be a bang-up of a contest. I hope you get a lot of entries, we all like seeing things go boom and bang. I wonder what people will blow up, will it be water, or will it be more. It has been a long time since I saw a volcano blow up, maybe someone will do that.


I’d like a few entries and the ball could be started rolling with something quite simple. Let’s see, cheers 😊

now this sounds like a cool contest. Hoping you get some fun entries.

Thanks Carl. Popping your finger on your cheek is going to win at present, jumping on a balloon, a firework? 😬

Hahaha! If The Husband were on social media and Steemit, this would be his type of gig! Mine? Not so much. Unless it's in the kitchen. And won't have been on purpose. 🤐

I am sure you will get some great entries.

Aww. Thank you 😊

Accidental bangs in the kitchen sound difficult to record and slightly worrying!

Maybe a false ignition in the exhaust of my oldtimer? ^^

Sounds like a bang waiting to happen!

My chemistry teacher was tragic in demonstrations as something always went wrong. Hos rocket got caught by the wind and drifted a kilometer to land on a roof and when he took us outside to drop sodium into water, kids moved in too early and it exploded giving them burns :D

Damn! Honey I burnt the kids 😩

What happened to him? Imagine the legal costs nowadays!

Small steps must have something tgst makes some noise? 😁

I hope to do this, always wanted to try something like this, now i need to find stuff to use. See you

Good stuff. I hope you find something that works 💥
