Introducing children to science at a young age assists in their brain development. Science experiments can be performed on young children. Using materials in experiments that children like to play with helps them to grow big ideas and understand fundamental concepts. The following lists easy science experiments for toddlers and preschoolers to introduce them to the world of science.
The 11th of February is International Day of Women and Girls in Science. It enables us to honour women’s significant achievements in science and place a much-needed focus on girls entering Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers.
Make a hard egg bounce by adding it to a cup of vinegar. This is a great STEAM experiment to try with children - make different colour "egg balls" and watch how vinegar dissolves the hard shell to create a bouncy egg.
In this STEAM project, children will be creating a lemon volcano. These lemon-smelling volcanoes create bubbly small eruptions which you can make in your learning environment with some easily available items in the kitchen.
