A growing concern in high schools the length and breadth of Britain is that less children than ever before are perusing science as they progress through their education. This is quite tragic as biology, chemistry and physics are subjects that let us know how the world around us works. Science can often get bad rap for being boring or difficult but science can be fascinating in both its intricacies and its simplicity. If you want to show your kids that science can be fun there are a number of science experiments you can perform in the home that will astound them:
How to Make Pepper Jump
Fishing For Ice
Floating a Ping Pong Ball
How to Make a Submarine
How to Suck an Egg into a Bottle
Simple science experiments, like the ones above, allow children to understand how basic scientific principles work whilst still being fun, practical and playful. If your child is interested in science there are a number of other methods for encouraging them. A lot of museums cater for children these days and their science labs are often very hands on and are more reminiscent of a play area than the dusty exhibits many people associate with museums. Science themed children’s parties are also becoming popular as they contain all the wow factor of a magic show whilst still getting the children interested in subjects they can further explore at school.
