STEM@Home: Science Bob

Hello Scientists! Welcome back to the STEM@Home blog. I am McKenna and I am helping run both in person and virtual camps this summer with ExploreHope, along with conducting some research. This is my second year with Hope Summer Science Camps and I am so excited to be a part of it again! I am a psychology major but looking to work with kids, in some way, for a career. 

When most people think about doing science at home, it freaks them out and seems intimidating! But…. no worries now because I have done some research for you, and found the perfect websites to bring Science Class to your home. Check it out! 

Science Bob is FULL of crazy science experiments that can be done at home and give great explanations as to what science is actually taking place. Here are some of my favorites. 

  • Blobs in a Bottle is one of the coolest ones because it looks like this! Most of the supplies can be found in your kitchen cabinets but it looks like a professional scientist created it in a lab. It is a great way to learn about intermolecular polarity which can be kind of tricky.

  • My next favorite is the Electromagnet building activity. This activity makes me feel like a true engineer! It gives step by step directions on how to use tools that you have at home to make an electromagnetic.

  • Last but not least, I have one last crazy experiment. Let’s Blow Up A Balloon without using our mouths! It seems impossible but never fear. With simple ingredients from home you can be amazed.
The incredible self-inflating balloon!

Ready to experience some science from the comfort of your home? Check out Science Bob’s website! Continue to learn more and more about STEM, and I hope you’ll come to love it as much as me!
