Generally, students like explosive and engaging experiments.

But you can definitely make your lessons interesting. I don't think every lesson should be an experiment without any explanation at all. You need to lecture once in a while, but always complement something fun. Don't be serious, talk to the interested ones after class, crack some jokes, and that's good enough for the students to respect you.
