Hands On Science

fluorescence

Kids love science and love engaging in hands-on, inquiry based activities that illustrate scientific principles. These pages describe a wide variety of activites and supporting materials to allow teachers, parents and others to setup experiments for students ranging in age from kindergarten through high school. Most activities can be performed by kids of most ages. The level of scientific engagement for each activity can be adjusted to be appropriate learning tools in elementary through high school and University level students.

tylerThese experiments, demonstrations and activites have been accumulated from organizing family science nights, teaching in the University and elementary school classrooms and have been contributed by Biologists, Chemists, Biochemists and Physicists. Improvements, alternatives to the activities, illustrations and deeper background materials are greatly appreciated and welcomed .
