Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) December 31, 2007
The Digital Bits Science Lab is a new website collecting science experiments meant for younger children. Many science resources are available for older students (particularly those of Science Olympiad age). There are far fewer resources for science experiments for young children. In addition, there are fewer resources that focus on teaching scientific fundamentals.
The Digital Bits Science Lab does these things. It intentionally stays away from the "Science Olympiad" level projects and instead presents easy, fun science experiments for children. These science experiments have a less complex presentation (easier to demo in a classroom or home environment), and are great science experiments for young children with shorter attention spans.
The site provides semi-structured hands-on science experiments and science education for children. Use these to teach specific scientific concepts, or just have some fun with your children and students learning about this world and how it works.
The "Science Labs" don't have to be labeled as such. The intent is to have these science experiments be more play than formal education. We want to teach the child that exploration, learning and fun can all be the same thing. This gives an educational nudge towards a playtime that may not normally have it.
The science experiments visually illustrate the basics of science, and present fun, affordable and educational ways to present those basics. All Science Lab experiments are categorized into topics as well as an estimated difficulty. This way the reader can easily find experiments matching their interests and complexity and time requirements.
At the time of this release, the available science lab experiments cover the following topics:
- Air pressure
- Chemical Reactions
- Color Mixing (Additive)
- Color Mixing (Subtractive)
- Static electricity
- Surface tension
Many of the Science Lab experiments are designed so that a child can research and perform them alone. Others will require guidance and help from parents or educators. Most Science Lab experiments have illustrations or photos of the labs themselves.
