Science Magic at Home is the perfect way to have fun learning science at home or at school. This collection of 20 classic Science Magic Tricks and Science Challenges will keep kids engaged with hands-on science fun for hours, if not days or even weeks! Each activity uses common household materials and is explained with a short demonstration video. Explanations of the science principles involved are provided but not before students answer a challenge question with immediate feedback. Each experiment is accompanied by a link for students to do more in depth reading about the science concept involved. All Science Magic Tricks and Science Challenges are safe but ADULT SUPERVISION is strongly recommended. This really shouldn’t be a problem since the adults are going to love the activities as much as the kids! Science Magic at Home is filled with enough science fun for the whole family! Oh, and did we mention? Its absolutely FREE!

Empower your students to direct their own learning with this interactive eLearning lesson from Gonyo Science. The new responsive design allows students to view the content on any device from desktop or notebook computers to tablets and mobile phones!
