Detailed information of the Science tricks in the video:

1. Slow motion ball:

Materials required: thick liquid, preferably honey, a heavy ball, and a sphere
shaped container

Instruction: Place the heavy ball in the lower half of the sphere.
Fill the lower half of the container with honey a little more than half. Let it move from the top of a slope area and see how it moves in Slow motion.
If you use too little or too much, it will affect the motion of the ball.

Water fire starter. 

Credit goes to The King of Random for this idea.
Materials Required: plastic or glass container with a curved area. The Pom bottles
work great. Fill the bottle with water. Fold 2 sheets of paper in half,
twice. Black Marker.

Instructions: Print or scribble a black mark on one of the sheets. On a sunny
day hold the bottle near the paper, focusing the light on the black area
of the paper. Once it starts to smoke and a hole begins to form, wrap
the other sheet of paper around the smoking piece. Wave the papers
through the air to feed oxygen to the spark. Continue this until the
paper catches on fire.

3. No-leak magic bag: 

Materials required: a zip baggy, pencils and water.

Instructions: Fill the bag almost to the top. Zip it
shut, and start sticking pencils through the bag. Sometimes a few drops
will leak out, but overall, this is a simple yet impressive trick

4. Liquid Stacking:

Materials required to do the science trick: a tall glass or bottle. Dish Soap, vegetable oil, dark corn syrup, rubbing alcohol, water and food coloring.

Instructions: First
add the dark corn syrup, then dish soap, then add food coloring to the
water and pour it in with the bottle tilted, then add the vegetable oil
(bottle tilted), and finally add food coloring to the alcohol and pour
it in with the bottle tilted.

5. Invisible Bottle:

glycerin, a glass and a bottle that will fit in the glass.

Instructions: Fill
both glass and bottle with glycerin and place the bottle in the glass.
It looks like the bottle disappears.

6. Dancing Liquid:

Materials: a powered speaker, a tone generator (can be found online), corn
starch, water and plastic to protect the speaker.

Instruction: Pour 1/2 cup of corn
starch in a bowl and 1/4 cup of water. Mix. Pour the liquid into the
speaker and generate a 60hz tone.

7. Magic Water Barrier:

2 of the same glasses. Hot water, cold water, food coloring and a
thin piece of plastic or cardboard.

Instructions for the Science magic trick: Pour the hot water in 1 glass, the
cold in the other glass, add food coloring, then place the plastic on
top of the hot water glass. Turn the glass upside down, place it on top
of the cold water glass, then carefully remove the plastic. Hot water is
less dense than cold water, so it “floats” on top of the cold water.

8. Leidenfrost effect:

Materials: a pan, water and a stove.

Turn the heat on high for about 4
minutes then add the water. This experiment can stain your pans.

9. Reverse Illusion:

Instruction: Add all sorts of images or words behind a glass, then watch as it reverses when you add water in the glass.

10. Reversing Liquid:

Required Materials for this reversing liquid Science Magic trick:  1 big glass, 1 smaller glass, 3 mixing glasses, corn syrup, pipettes, food coloring, and clips.

Instructions: First
pour the corn syrup into the 2 bigger glasses. Place the smaller glass
inside of the bigger glass. Attach the clips to prevent the smaller
glass from moving side to side in the bigger glass. Pour a small amount
of corn syrup into the 3 mixing glasses. Add food coloring and stir.
Fill each pipette with a different color, then add the colored corn
syrup to your big glass. Turn the smaller glass carefully and watch the
colors mix. Turn it back and watch them unmix.
