STEM at Home

Check out these resources from Sciencefun.org. I highlighted a few activities, specifically choosing ones that have simple materials and a video. It’s just a sample of the science activities on their site, pick what works best for you and, as a scientist, be safe!

There’s more from NASA, the National Science Foundation, and the Smithsonian.

Many great ideas for science at home!

Simple Science at Home – Static Electricity

You might be familiar with the activity that moves your hair even if no one is touching it! Simply rub a balloon on a soft paper towel, cotton or wool shirt, and bring it near a person’s hair.
It helps if the person has fine hair, my husband’s is GREAT so I often draft him for this demonstration. He just loves it! ????

If you want more suggestions for playing around with static electricity while we wait out this virus event, here are suggestions from the Exploratorium.

Enjoy!
