We love doing STEM projects with our kids and our favorite projects are the ones we create. But sometimes we just want something quick and fun you can do with the kids.
Here are 15 STEM Activities for kids from Youtube that are easy to try at home.
This is a really fun and simple experiment. I think the hardest part might be finding a film canister these days. If you don’t have a film canister, you can try using a rubber stopper in a soda bottle instead.
This one is very simple and the speaker is not required. But it does make it even more fun!
Only a couple of ingredients are needed to make the perfect slime.
This is a cool experiment that shows the magic of surface tension.
Another cool experiment using the surface tension of water.
There are many Youtube videos on showing amazing supercooled water experiments. This one is challenging to get working, but is a good opportunity to teach kids about fine tuning an experiment.
Fun learning about the relationship between air pressure and temperature.
Another air pressure temperature experiment with an exciting result.
Beautiful patterns result from freezing soap bubbles.
This is a really fun experiment. I think the harder part is getting the egg back out of the bottle!
A great experiment to learn about liquid density.
I’ve never understood how the old Mentos and Diet Coke trick worked. I think maybe I understand it a little better after watching this video…
Maybe this explains why electricity is so expensive. It probably takes a ton of pennies to keep our house running.
Okay, I don’t think I recommend trying this at home since it looks way too dangerous. But it is educational to watch!
A fun machine kept moving by two flames.
