Science Activities and Experiments

Science activities help little learners of all ages understand important concepts, and these science activities for kids give them the opportunity to discover something completely new. What's more, science activities are fun! Some, like Oobleck, are messy. Others are impressive, like the classic erupting volcano project. Whatever activity you end up trying, your child will be developing new skills as he forms predictions and makes observations. No matter where your child's interests may lie, we have a science experiment that will teach him something cool and make him smile.

For more in-depth experiments and investigations, check out our Science Fair Project Ideas section of the site.
