DIY Science Experiments

Popular Mechanics bought eight science kits for kids, reviewed them, and found instructions on the 'net for replicating the same experiments with materials many people have on hand.
...homemade experiments can be just as complex and educational (while costing up to $100 less), so we found alternatives to each of the boxed kits that teach similar lessons just as well. Bottom line: Whether preassembled or drawn from kitchen cupboards, science kits can be educational and fun.

I am of two minds on this article. On one hand, The suggested DIY experiments are practical, potentially informative and relatively cheap. On the other hand, the kits are not that much more expensive and come with comprehensive instruction manuals.

If one is capable of explaining the electrolysis of water to Hydrogen, then use the homemade experiment. Otherwise, you would be smart to buy the kit.
