Science Resources: Fun Science Projects You Can Do At Home

Every child should learn science – not only are science projects fun, they also offer numerous other benefits to children:

  • Science involves a lot of communication with other people.
  • Science develops patience and perseverance in kids.
  • It can help kids form a healthy dose of scepticism.
  • Science teaches kids about the world around them.
  • Science can spark in kids’ minds that they, too, can help solve the world’s big problems.

Science careers are also on the increase so it is advantageous to nurture a healthy interest in science in our children…
