Learn physics, chemistry, and biology in your own backyard! In Outdoor Science Lab for Kids, scientist and mom Liz Heinecke has created 52 family-friendly labs designed to get you and yours outside in every season.

From playground physics to backyard bugs, this book makes it fun and easy to dig into the natural sciences and learn more about the world around you. Have fun learning about:

  • the¬†laws of physics¬†by constructing and using¬†a marshmallow catapult.
  • centripetal forces¬†by swinging a sock filled with gelatin snack and marbles.
  • earthworms¬†by using ground mustard seed dissolved in water to make them wriggle to the surface.
  • germination¬†by sprouting a sapling from a pinecone or tree seed.
  • surface tension¬†and¬†capillary action¬†by growing baking soda stalagmites and stalactites.
Many of the simple and inexpensive experiments are safe enough for toddlers, yet exciting enough for older kids, so families can discover the joy of science and STEM education together.
