It’s Tuesday, February 28, 2017, and time for Science at ClickSchooling!
Age Range: 10-18 (Grades 4-12, with parental supervision)
Today’s website is a bit of a diversion in that the site is a commercial enterprise called “Home Science Tools” that sells all kinds of science kits and curriculum that help students (in Pre-K through high school) explore life science, space, biology, chemistry, physics and more. HOWEVER, they also provide FREE hands-on science ideas that you can try at home.
Some of the categories of science projects include:
- Life Science
- General Science
- High School
- Earth and Space
- Physical Science and Engineering
Some of the experiments include:
- Make a Cartesian Diver – all about scuba diving and buoyancy
- How your heart pumps – Make a pump using a jar, a balloon, and two straws.
- Build a Solar Oven – Use solar power to cook food using a pizza box
- and lots more!
Each experiment comes with a materials list and instructions. It also offers suggestions for science kits and products (available from the site’s store) to further learning. This is clever marketing. Again, you don’t have to buy a thing to explore the free resources.
