Our next guest is a dad on a mission to make spending time with your kids easier and more fun, but most importantly, educational at home. At-home science projects, he has 3.5 million followers on social platforms and a new book titled "The dad lab." Please welcome sergei urban. Nice to have you here. I'm looking at eggs. I'm looking at like from the -- left over from toilet tissue. A lot going on. So yeah, experiments with my kids, I want to show you a simple one they can do before breakfast at home. All you need is a glass of water, a piece of cardboard, empty toilet roll and eggs, and we learn about inertia. You would think when you hit it everything will fly out but insaoirse going to make sure that everything lands inside the glass. Inertia is the existence of changing of move -- yeah. So how do we do this? Show us what we're doing here. Okay, let me just show you first -- You show first. Stand back just to be safe, yeah. Let me show you how it's done. Yeah, yeah. Now you do it. Okay ready? I need my right hand. We both got to stand back. Get over here. I'm protecting you. You're going to do it at the same time. Okay, okay. How hard do I go? Make sure you don't hit the glasses. Do a countdown, three, two, one. I'll be honest with you, you get all this stuff for the kids. As an adult this could be fun too. And the thing is, it's okay if you break an egg or two. It's just part of the process. Sergei, you don't have to be into science to follow this new book you have. You can be, like, a regular person. Yeah. I'm not a scientist. I'm just doing that with my kids. Let me show you another one. What you got? Sergei, after this I'm going to share what I do for my adventures. Your kids would get excited.

As I mentioned before, as I mentioned before, failure is a part of the learning process. Well, you did say that sometimes you may break an egg. Yeah. We have more eggs. Sergei, maybe you had a big dinner last night. Sara, I think you should try. I'm going to try it. I think you should try. Okay. Do I hold your hand to get you up there? What is the key here? You stand over here sergei. See this? Sergei, do you have to step up equally because you want the same weight, right? So is it better if you guys let me down to descend upon the eggs? Yeah, that would be better, yeah. Ready? Okay, all right. I think we all learned that I will not be trying this experiment. And also, when you try this at home, make sure you watch your feet because if the eggs break you can still use them if your feet are clean. We don't waste any food. Sergei, this is really -- this is really something and I love the fact that you're like any dad. You're just coming up with things, you're not a mad scientist, just having fun with the kids.
