Hands-On Science

We love science experiments and learning about science!

Most of our science projects and experiments use things you can easily find around your house or, at most, can be purchased at the grocery store or a big box store.  All of our projects are about hands-on activities. This keeps my kiddos engaged in learning and excited.
