Now that kids are home from school, Jessica Alfieri from Mad Science of Long Island has provided some hands-on DIY STEM experiments to help encourage science learning at-home! Parents can feel some much needed relief with these guilt-free activities and kids can enjoy the fun and learning at-home while still maintaining a healthy-level of curiosity and education.
In the DIY STEM experiments below, kids will have a chance to dive deep and explore all that science has to offer from the comfort of their home. Just because class isn’t in session doesn’t mean the learning has to stop! The best part is, most of the experiments listed below can be conducted with items lying around the house! By using average household items, kids can learn about air-pressure, sound waves and more!
