Bubble Day!

We blew bubbles on the lawn all morning! Did you miss it? Check out some bubble fun you can have at home!

Fizz, Boom, Read: Engineering

Blocks, LEGO, even paper can be used to build to new heights with engineering and building science. Sure, you might not be building a real bridge to cross a river with, or a house to live in, but even simple exercises like stacking blocks can show kids basic physics and engineering ideas.

Building experiments are easy at home. Use any blocks to build towers and bridges and see how high or how far you can go. Or take a look at some of the links below for fun building ideas:

Fizz, Boom, Read: Plants

Summer is full of greenery, flowers, fruit, plants of all kinds and your summer vacation is a perfect time to explore them! Discovering the science of plants is as easy as peeling an orange and looking at the wedges inside, counting the seeds you find, comparing the taste of it to a grapefruit or a lemon. Or try taking a nature walk in your neighborhood and use your science journal to record the plants you see. Can you identify them using this plant guide or another you might already have?

Mad Science - Wacky Waves

Mad Science is all wet this month with Wacky Waves: A program about water, waves and oceans.

Ocean Books

Mad Science - Eye to Eye & Energy Blast

We've got two awesome topics for Mad Science this month!

Mad Science - SPACE!

Blast off into outer space in our April Mad Science programs!

Outer Space

Mad Science - Acids & Bases

They may sound dangerous, but acids and bases are all around us! Find out more about them and see them at work at this month's Mad Science programs.

Acids & Bases

Mad Science - Optical Illusions

Your eyes will play tricks on you at Mad Science this month as we explore optical illusions.

Optical Illusion Books

Mad Science - Magnets!

Feel the pull of magnetism in January with our two Mad Science programs for kids.

Magnet Books

Mad Science - Chemystery

Coming up in December we have another set of Mad Science programs, one for 3-5 year olds and one for 6-10 year olds. Both of this coming month's programs will be on unlocking the mysteries of chemistry. You might remember chemistry from high school or college, but chemistry is all around us and you can do some fun chemistry activities at home! Bake a cake and you've not only done some chemistry but you've got a treat to eat when you're done.
