The experiments below are lots of fun! They are from a
website called ExpeRimental created
by The Royal Institution. They state:
All the experiments are about encouraging natural curiosity and
the wonders of science while you play.
The aim is for children to have fun with science at home
(with their grown-ups) while encouraging scientific thinking and
processes. The activities are designed
to be easy to do, using household objects.
Please note, an adult is needed
for each experiment.
Each experiment has a short video, explaining how to do it
and the science behind it. Take a moment to have a look and have fun!
