Physical Science Activities & Experiments

Our physical science activities help kids of all ages explore the mechanics of their world. Through engaging experiments and hands-on projects, young scientists will discover important scientific principles as they create their own compass, generate electricity using potatoes or their own bodies, investigate with homemade CSI kits, build a hovercraft, and explore the science of foods by constructing and deconstructing their favorite snacks.
