For educators, youth workers, and anyone who works closely with young learners, Scientific American's Bring Science Home series offers a large collection of hands-on science experiments and activities. This series was initiated in 2011 and currently contains almost 400 science activities designed for children between the ages of 6 and 12. Visitors may browse by topic, such as health, sustainability, or technology. Each featured activity includes a detailed description of the procedure, accompanied by background information and links to related resources that may be of interest. One recently published activity, "Make Sprinkles Dance," engages learners with the concepts of sound and vibration using just a bowl, a rubber band, plastic wrap, and some colored sprinkles. In another recent activity, "Memory Surprises," participants test their ability to recall a list of words and a familiar object and learn about memory and cognition. New activities are posted every week, so stay tuned.
