Easy Science Experiments! Do At Home or In the Classroom! Video Tutorials & CONTEST! (~OVER~)

Make a Power Pack & Light Up a Light Bulb With These Easy Science Experiments!
With summer just a breath away, here are some easy science experiments using D batteries that you can do at home on a rainy or lazy day! For additional inspiration, check out the scribble robot that we built on another day!

These video tutorials includes two science experiments: 
1)How to Build a Power Pack (using D batteries)
2)How to Complete a Simple Circuit (using the power pack constructed in the first video)!  If you wish, there is also a tutorial for building a bulb holder, at the beginning of the second video!  (Optional.)  

***Important: please only use D batteries in these experiments, as household electrical current contains high voltage that could cause serious injuries!***

Did You Know? Energizer recently launched the new Energizer EcoAdvanced battery, their longest lasting AA high-performance alkaline battery, high-performance AA battery, and the world’s first battery made with 4% recycled batteries.  This battery is a first step in a journey towards a goal of developing batteries made with entirely recycled materials – hoping to reach 40% by 2025. 

Their "Join Our Journey" campaign celebrates this world’s first innovation, and encourages and inspires the next generation of thinkers and innovators to begin a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) journey of their own, so innovations like this can happen in the future, 

Energizer invites Canadians to:

-Get involved with STEM at home, through fun experiments that can be created using simple materials you may already have. 

-Help choose the next child innovator by voting for their favourite dream creature at joinenergizer.ca!

  10. Since we don't have tv, rainy days are often spent watching a movie or two. Although, they and I would love to do science experiments!

  11. Thanks for sharing the instructional videos to complete a few experiments at home. Some experiments including kits you buy in store don't come with everything you need to complete the experiments. It can be very frustrating to a little one who just wants to open the box and get started. The other thing that is nice about the experiments you shared is that the kids can complete them from start to finish without having to wait hours or days between steps. Some kits we've bought before you have to wait a very long time between steps to compete an experiment. My kids just don't have the patience for this. Thanks again.
