Bringing the Fun Back to Science

Oct 18, 2017 12:00 AM

 

For anyone who has a passion for science, they can talk to you all day about why they love it and how amazing it is. However, these days, fewer kids can learn this for themselves as schools cut budgets and reduce resources available, but don’t worry! There are still plenty of ways to bring the fun back to science and get kids excited about it again.

Five out-of-the-box ways to get kids into science

1. Explore Together

Don’t feel like you need to understand all aspects of science to intrigue your children. You may not have all the answers but you can certainly help your children find them. If they have questions, seek out the answers together.

2. Play Video Games

Video games are a sneaky way to expose kids to the science of coding. These days, it is almost essential that children learn the basic elements of coding. Video games such as Minecraft can help pique their interest and lead to further learning.

3. Take Field Trips

Field trips are the perfect opportunity to help kids learn to love science.  By visiting science museums geared towards children, you can naturally foster their passion for science.  It doesn’t have to be a science museum either –  zoos, aquariums, parks, nature preserves and other areas can all be the ideal backdrop for bringing the fun back into science. 

4. Read About Scientists

Teach kids how exciting science can be by introducing them to scientists from both the past and present.  The best way to do this is through reading.  Literature can expose children to a wide variety of scientists, from biologists to engineers and doctors.  After reading about these individuals, perhaps your children will be inspired to do some exploring or science experiments themselves. 

5. Start a Science Club

If your child’s school doesn’t offer a program, consider starting a science club after school.  If you do not have the time or resources to start one yourself, consider joining an existing one.  One great option to get kids involved in science is through Mad Science, who provides science programs for kids ages 3 – 10.  These programs include birthday parties, school clubs, workshops and special events. 

Kids are naturally inquisitive. They are filled with dozens of questions and are constantly trying to figure out how things work and why things happen the way they do. Little do they know, kids are naturally born mini-scientists. Here at Mad Science New York, we ensure that every child is intrigued with our Fun Lab Parties, book your party today!
