Scavenger Hunt Engineering Challenge

Join JHCM teacher, Anna, in a scavenger hunt for building materials! Your goal is to find materials around your house (without asking your parents!) and then use these materials to engineer a tower! Video demonstration with Anna will go live Wednesday morning, April 29th. Materials and Instructions Here

Earth Day Seed Exploration

What better way to celebrate Earth Day than by learning all about seeds and soil! Seeds are the start of life and the reason that this earth is full of biodiversity, beauty and food! You and your little one can explore seeds using fruits and veggies that you have in your house and can even grow your own mini garden in your windowsill. Materials and Instructions Here

Dry Ice Experiments! 

Playing with dry ice is one of the coolest science experiments you can do in your home! But an adult has to be present in order to conduct this science experiment! In this Wacky Wednesday Science Program you will learn all about the magic of dry ice, how we can be safe when playing with it, and some really cool tips and tricks for experimenting with dry ice.

Rain Cloud in a Jar

It’s April and it’s VERY wet in Teton County! It’s either snowing or raining or a mixture of both creating a muddy mess all around us.  I first encourage you all to pull on some boots and old clothes and go play in the mud! After your mud exploration, warm up inside with some sensory- science play! Learn all about the rain clouds that helped make that mud you just played in. Materials and Instructions Here

Spy Experiments 

Do you like pretending to be a spy or detective? Have you ever wanted to send a secret message to your friend or sibling without your parents being able to read it? Well this is the perfect science experiment for all the spies out there! Test out this experiment and you’ll be able to write secret messages to your friends who will then use chemistry to decode your message! Check back in on Wednesday for a link to Anna’s video demonstration. Materials and Instructions Here

Duckling Data 

 JHCM teacher Anna has just received 4 ducklings and they are growing so fast! Watching them grow has already been such a learning experience for Anna, she wants you all to join in with her! So this week’s Wacky Wednesday Science is all about ducklings! Do a fun experiment to learn how ducks waterproof their feathers and then check out the Duckling Data measuring chart to make some scientific hypotheses on the growth of each of the ducklings!

Constellation Cups 

Since our National Parks are still closed, let’s camp out in our living rooms! Make a fort or set up a tent, grab your sleeping bags and check out the stars! Yes, that’s right, bring the stars inside  with these DIY constellation cups! Project all sorts of different constellations on your ceiling with this cool scientific toy.

Egg-speriment!

With Easter around the corner, the Jackson Hole Children’s Museum can’t help but think of what cool science experiments you can do with eggs! Egg-speriments are so fun and easy for you to do at home! This is one of our favorite egg-speriments that will be sure to wow your family!
