School Science Projects Hydraulic Jack :

School science projects hydraulic jack is nice science fair ideas. We have been providing many school science projects , Today we are making hydraulic jack. Hydraulic jack can be made easily at classroom or any home too. With simple concept of pressure we can make awesome science experiment for school science fairs.

What is Hydraulic Jack ?

For simple definition hydraulic jack is a simple device that helps to lift any load. Normally hydraulic jack contains a hydraulic cylinder that helps to elevate the object.

With this simple concept of hydraulic lift we can lift many heavy loads. We also can learn about Pascal’s law.


If you are searching some science fair ideas for school students. This school science project can be great topics. Hydraulic jack experiment is best suitable for school students for class 6 to 8.

Hydraulic jack experiment helps us to answers many questions like :

  • How to make Hydraulic jack experiment ?
  • What is Hydraulic jack ?
  • 8th grade science fair ideas.



Hydraulic jack experiment is best way to explain Pascal’s law. From this school science project we can learn about fluid, pressure too. Now let us make our science project.

Materials Required to Hydraulic Jack Experiment :

We have made this simple science project using some simple materials.Some of materials needed for making Hydraulic jack experiment are :

Diy Hydraulic Jack
Diy Hydraulic Jack
  • Take sixteen strong cardboard’s having length 12cm and breadth of 1.5 cm.
  • 20cm long medical pipe is taken. You can get this pipe form pharmacy (medical store).
  • Medical pipe connector is also needed.
  • Get some strong bamboo sticks. We have use sausage stick for this purpose.
  • Take two syringe, One of 10mla and next 20ml. You can also use same size syringe.
  • Some of other materials needed are hot melting glue, sharp knife, metal scale, etc.


How to make Hydraulic hydraulic scissor jack experiment :

  • First of all divide each cardboard’s into three points.
  • With thin needle make holes into those three points for all sixteen cardboard’s. After this we have used sausage sticks for making bigger hole. Repeat this process for all cardboard’s.
  • Cut eighteen bamboos sticks having ten centimeter each.
  • Arrange all cardboard’s in crisscross and pass the bamboo sticks.
  • Close all the end of sticks using hot glue.
  • Repeat this process in another end also.
  • Finally our chain is ready.
  • We have made a cardboard base where our whole project stands.
  • Glue the front two ends of chain on the cardboard base.
  • Attach the pressing end of one syringe to the chain as in below video. And glue that syringe to the base.
  • Using medical pipe connect to another syringe .
  • Finally our school science projects hydraulic jack  is ready for demo.

School Science Projects Hydraulic Jack Video :

For better demo of preparation of this project, we have embedded our working process below in video format.

Here is full process of making this school science projects hydraulic jack experiment in video form. This is our YouTube channel DIY Projects. We also have crated many other school science projects in our channel. We also provide many science fair ideas for school students.

School science projects hydraulic jack explanation :

Hydraulic jack experiment is an easy science experiment. With this experiment we can learn three things.

  • Hydraulic scissor lift.

As mentioned above. With this simple science project we can get the concept of actual hydraulic jack. How the device works. how to make the hydraulic jack.

  • What is pressure ?

Pressure can be defined as “The ration of force applied perpendicularly per unit area.” Unit of pressures is pascal. There are many types of pressure some of them are absolute pressure, gauge pressure,atmospherics pressure, etc.

  • What is Pascal’s law ?

Pascale is a great French scientist. He has invented many theories and cracked many studies. One of them is Pascal’s law. From Pascal’s law can be find that when a force is applied to fluid in in closed vessel then the force is transmitted throughout the fluid.


Advantages of science fair ideas Hydraulic jack :

There are lots of advantages of this Hydraulic jack experiment . We have mention some of the merits :

  • We can get knowledge about the concept behind Hydraulic jack.
  • Hydraulic jack helps to make our work easier and faster.
  • We can lift heavy load easily using this device.
  • This system is easy to use. And its mechanical advantage is high.
  • Hydraulic jack is small in size and is portable too.
  • This science project can be great science fair ideas.

Safety tips while making Hydraulic jack experiment :

Our first priority before doing any science project must always be safety. We always suggest you to perform any science project protecting yourself.

  • Always ware a safety glass which protects your eyes.
  • Care fully use hot melting glue. If not it may burn your hands.
  • Properly handle knife and pin otherwise it my cut.
  • Do this science project with your parents, teachers or any senior brother and sister.

Alternative process for making Hydraulic jack experiment :

There are lots of ways to make hydraulic jack as school science project. We can make a simple type like car lifter. The same concept can be used to opposite direction and made as hydraulic press. The same concept can be used in house as a lift.
