I have found that my kids love science when they can get their hands dirty. It’s ok to watch a volcano erupt on a video, but to create the video and then watch it erupt in your kitchen is even more fun! Scientific Explorer sent me a Lava-Blasting Volcano kit to erupt at home. Of course my kids were more than willing to help out.

Scientific Explorer Virtual Science Fair

Scientific Explorer has started an Online Virtual Science Fair. Upload videos of your kids and family learning about science and each month they will pick a winner. Watch the video to hear more about the science fair.

So gather your little scientists and go explore the world around you. I also find that science is a lot more fun when I’m doing rather than watching. Check out all the Virtual Science Fair projects on the YouTube channel.

Elmer’s Science Fair Display Board

Every science fair project needs a display board. My 8 year old son decided he was going to draw a volcano on his display board. Here it is:

My son used the small Elmer’s Tri-Fold Display Board and Elmer’s Project Popperz to create his science fair display board. Elmer’s has an extensive line of products for making great science fair projects.

Notice the little people way at the bottom on either side. They are protected he said. I’m not sure how, but he said they are ok. This project we did turned about to be perfect timing for my daughter’s first grade class because they were studying Hawaii and she had a better idea of how a volcano erupts and she shared it with her information with her class.
