Kid Science: Polymers

Polymers are groups of molecules that are connected to create a tangible object. Like plastic. The polymers in plastic are flexible, and actually move to form around a pencil poked through the bag to create a seal so that water doesn’t flow through. Try this experiment out to see polymers in action! The steps: 1. Pour water […]

Kid Science: Food-Coloring Carnations

Here’s a fun science experiment that shows kids how plants “drink” water—and you can even see how it travels through the petals! Water travels up the stem of the flower to the petals and eventually evaporates into the air. This is called transpiration – here’s how to see it in action! The steps: 1. Add […]

Kid Science: Egg Geodes

Creating colorful egg geodes teaches sedimentation and crystallization–and sparks a love for science and learning! The alum powder on the egg gives the alum particles in the water a place to attach themselves as they crystallize. The steps: 1. Start with clean, empty eggshell halves. Add glue and spread evenly with a paintbrush. 2. Coat […]

Kid Science: Colorful Crystals

A fun project to do with your kids to teach solubility, evaporation, solids vs. liquids as well as the science behind how crystals form! The steps: 1. Start by mixing 1/2 cup epsom salt with 1/2 cup hot water until completely dissolved (about a minute or so). 2. Add 10-15 drops of food coloring and […]
