I am a scientist and have spent the better part of my adult life working in a laboratory. When people ask about what that actually means, I usually tell them it’s probably what you imagine—white lab coats, strong smells, things that bubble and change color on the bench top, little cells moving around under a microscope.
Are you wondering how you can sharpen your child’s science skills in a fun way this summer? All aspects of the scientific method can easily be incorporated into your outdoor activities. Whether it’s making observations of how a certain animal behaves, forming a question about the visible stars in the sky, or examining how different objects move, there’s definitely at least one fun way to incorporate science into your child’s summer schedule.
