Fun science projects to do at home

Thanks to my friend, Jamie F., for pointing me to the “Geek Dad Day” article in Wired magazine with ideas for science projects you can do with your kids at home. Sample projects include:

  • Build a motorized, drawing “art bot”
  • Build a working hovercraft
  • Measure the speed of light with chocolate

Just be sure to read the experiments carefully and provide adult supervision as necessary. Doesn’t seem like you’re going to want your middle-schooler building, say, a steam engine solo.
