Looking for a fun science experiment?  Here’s a fun freebie offered by Supercharged Science.  Your kids build a miniature hovercraft out of an old CD and a water bottle – it’s pretty cool.  We’ve tried out a bunch of their freebies, and the kids really enjoy them. 

Why we like them:

  • They usually start with a fun experiment and Aurora Lipper, who does the teaching in the videos, gets the kids immediately involved doing something. 
  • She explains each step so they can follow along even without your help.  (Yay!  Keep a couple kids busy while you’re helping the others)
  • The parts required are usually household items you already have or can get easily.
  • And then she’ll introduce the science part during or after the equipment. 
  • It’s a great way to get the kids excited about science and then slip the teaching in while they’re distracted.

FYI – You do have to type in your email address to get their freebies. (No spam)  They give out a lot of quality, free experiment videos as advertising for their paid options.
