Full Answer

To make an electromagnet, wind the copper wire around the iron nail and leave two ends of the wire jutting out. Attach these ends to both ends of the battery and it's done.

To make a lava lamp, pour water and vegetable oil into an empty soda bottle. Wait for the two liquids to separate then drop a fizzing tablet. The oil should start floating around, forming blobs.

To make an egg float in water, pour water into a cup until it's half full. Mix this with salt, then pour normal water on top. Slowly drop the egg and it should float in the middle of the water.
