If you're a parent teaching at home, resident science guy Steve Spangler is back with some amazing experiments that you can do with your kids, all inspired by TikTok! From a lesson in centripetal force, to finding out how Executive Producer Andy reacts to mixing Mentos and Coca-Cola, you're going to want to see this!

Spangler is the guy at 9NEWS who makes things fizz, pop, smoke and erupt all in the name of making science fun. Steve's eye-catching science experiments are featured weekly on the 4 p.m. show and Mile High Mornings.

Spangler joined 9NEWS in 2000 as a science contributor, but the title quickly morphed into the 9NEWS Science Guy. His weekly experiments and science segments are designed to teach viewers creative ways to make learning fun. 

Spangler never fails to surprise his co-hosts who seem to enjoy an occasional blast from a fire extinguisher or are eager to help trigger a few exploding pumpkins... all in the name of science.

Spangler is probably best known for teaching millions of people how to turn an ordinary bottle of soda and a roll of Mentos into an erupting geyser of fun.

Spangler is a two-time Heartland Emmy winner and holds a Guinness World Record for conducting the largest physics experiment in 2009.
