Liz Heinecke is The Kitchen Pantry Scientist, a molecular biologist who began experimenting with ways to make science hands-on and fun with her own three children. She has developed a number of engaging, interactive scientific activities and DIY projects that may appeal to elementary school teachers as well as educators at summer camps, afterschool programs, and other informal educational environments. These activities include making tie-dye milk, crafting a "foaming slime volcano," and finding monarch caterpillars. As the title suggests, many of these activities can be done at home with everyday materials and may appeal to parents and caregivers as well. Activities are explained via short videos which have been tagged for helpful browsing (e.g. chemistry experiments, convection, or weather, to name just a few). Visitors may also want to check out The Kitchen Pantry Scientist YouTube page, where select activities are organized into playlists.
