Posted on Wed, Jun 12, 2019

Summer is here, and if you're like many of us, that means you now have a house full of kids in desperate need of something to keep them amused.  When Fortnite loses its appeal, wrangle up your kids and some basic crafting materials and have some hands-on fun with these easy science experiments.

Here's all seven videos in our Building Up STEAM series of DIY projects and activities for you and your kids.  These are all a great way to spend a summer afternoon, or they can expanded upon for science projects in the upcoming school year.  (If you like these at-home experiments, you should see our live assembly shows!)
