Here at Science Sparks we love science experiments and STEM Challenges that use recycled materials. A Pringles can is a great versatile item that can be used for lots of different science activities. We’ve made torches, art bots, drums and even motorised cars all using a Pringles can as the main part.

Can you think of any more ideas for us?

A Pringles can is the perfect size and shape for making a torch. We used a full size can as normal torch and a mini can as a head torch!
