In an effort to engage kids in science and create excitement about science, Hood River County 4-H has created Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) lessons that introduce students to a career and give them a hands on experience. Chemistry is one of the favorites!
Along with learning about what a chemist is, students have the opportunity to create their own chemistry experiment. Yes, it is a little messy, but it’s for the kids! Kids can either create flubber or a bouncy ball. Kids are introduced to the science inquiry process and for formal educators the lessons are connected to the Next Generation Science Standards. What a great way to explore science!
All of our STEM kits can be viewed online and these kits can be borrowed by contacting Dani.firstname.lastname@example.org.
