Free Science Webinars for Kids at Home

Here are some more free science teaching resources for kids (age 5-12) during the worldwide school shutdowns.

MEL Academy is offering online classes in physics, chemistry and elementary school science covering topics like:

  • Acids and alkali
  • Static electricity
  • Diffusion and mixing
  • Energy
  • Levers

Each webinar lasts 45 minutes, split into three equal parts.

  • Section 1: Investigation of the topic
  • Section 2: DIY science experiments
  • Section 3: MEL Science experiment demonstration

The experiments are done with household materials so it should be easy to follow and fun.

If you haven’t heard of MEL Science, they offer science experiments for kids to be done at home. If you subscribe you get a monthly science experiment kit in the mail with all the necessary equipment for the hands-on science activities.

Here’s the link to the free webinars:

Did you know...

… that on this day, exactly 22 years ago, the Russian module Zarya was launched into space, giving a start to assembling the International Space Station – the largest single structure humans ever put into space?

Honoring this breakthrough, we ask you to take part in our end-of-year fundraising campaign which will help us publish even more adaptations on scientific discoveries such as this article about astronomical dust. Please help us inspire students to pursue careers in the STEM field. Every little bit helps!

We aim to raise 1000$ during our month-long campaign. This is just about 30$ a day!

Can you donate at least 5$ towards that goal?

Thank you. -Tanya
