Unleash your inner scientist! Turn your kitchen or backyard into a science lab with just a few simple ingredients that can be found in your cupboard or at the grocery store. These experiments are designed to be a fun, easy way for kids (and adults!) to learn about science, technology, engineering and math. Each experiment comes with a handy instruction sheet you can download and print, as well as a step-by-step video.
Once you've tried one or all of the experiments, download your Honourary Scientist Certificate!
