Are you ready to indulge in some brain snacks? I am! Here at the Exploratorium’s Science Snacks you can find all sorts of treats to stimulate your mind.
If you want to learn more about Science Snacks, check out the Questions about Snacks link. There you will discover what each snack contains and the history behind the Science Snacks at the Exploratorium.
With well over 90 snacks for you to try out, you can have all sorts of scientific fun. Some of these would be great experiments to try out with your kids. And most of them take minimal equipment to do.
I think these snacks would be a neat way to get your kids interested in Science over the summer! You could even have Science days where you invite their friends over and do fun experiments. Wouldn’t that be an awesome way to spend a rainy day?
Each snack will tell you what materials you need for the experiment and then gives you instructions on how to set it up, or perform it (if there is no setup required) and then it tells you what you should notice, and what the results should be. Some of these experiments just require a drinking straw or paper! Others can get a little more advanced.
