Science is a field that has always been a subject of interest to kids. They love to do experiments, get their hands dirty and take things apart. However, science is not just an interest for kids. It is also a field that brings in billions of dollars every year for the United States economy.
Kids can do science projects at home with the help of their parents or teachers and these are some great ideas for science projects for kids:
- Making a volcano out of baking soda and vinegar
- Experimenting with magnets
- Creating a rainbow in a jar by using oil and food coloring
- Building structures out of aluminum foil and toothpicks
