Saturday Science - Home Edition (Fall 2020)

In fall 2020, we distributed at-home science kits to local students and families, and we gathered online to complete the activities together. We made our own neuron models, optical illusions, and brain hats, and we also had a blast talking about what it means to be a scientist! But the fun isn’t over. For those who couldn’t make it to our event, we’ve recorded videos of our lesson plans for enjoyment at home! Just check out the videos below to find instructions and a list of the necessary supplies. Content is geared toward elementary and middle school students, but learners of all ages are welcome!

Week 1, Build-A-Neuron:
Week 2, Seeing Double:
