  June 2011 - Sizzlin' Science: Fun in the Sun!
Long summer days are full of fun with baseball games to bike rides to hours spent doing nothing but daydreaming. But summer vacation is also the perfect time to keep your child’s brain buzzing with hands-on science experiments, from hunting hurricanes and counting constellations with weather and astrology to classifying geodes and befriending beetles with geology and entomology.
You may think that combining science with summer vacation sounds like a parental pipe dream, but with all the time for child-directed learning and hands-on experimentation, summer is a kid scientist's dream come true! We've searched out a few of the best and most fun Sizzlin' Science activities and backyard experiments that are perfect for a summer full of science discovery.

Backyard Weather Station:
Summer is the season of hurricanes, heat waves and thunderstorms. Encourage your kids to explore meteorology by helping them build a backyard weather station! Explore the elements of temperature, rainfall, wind speed, air pressure and more with just a few simple items from your local hardware store. Keep a weather calendar to describe whether it was hot or cool, humid or dry, or clear or stormy each day. Kids will discover the basics of scientific observation and record-keeping while satisfying their natural curiosity about weather
Build Your Own Backyard Weather Station

The Sky's The Limit:
Some of the best backyard science can be found right over your head! Discovering astronomy is magical for kids and the stars during summer reveal some of the most dramatic constellations. Take your family on an astronomical adventure by participating in an evening star watch and try to locate the Big Dipper or Milky Way. Grab a few lawn chairs or just a blanket and let your cosmic journey begin!

Wacky Water Games & Bubbly-ology:
Nothing says summer like swimming, splashing and slippin' and slidin' in some cool, refreshing water. Whether you are looking through a sprinkler to see a rainbow or measuring the waves at the beach-with a few simple tools, you can turn water play into water exploration! Gather a few plastic tubs or bowls and have kids move water from one container to another to discover the properties of water such as measuring volume, experiencing the force of suction, water surface tension and gravity. Keep your summer bubbling with excitement with a small plastic swimming pool, a hula hoop and our Super Science Bubble recipe to create the human bubble!

Get Buggy:
Most kids are natural entomologists — people who study insects. Foster their curiosity during the buggy summer by leaving something sweet outside, like a slice of fruit with a drop of honey on it, and seeing what types of insects it attracts. Another idea is to plant different colors and types of flowers with your kids and see which ones attract butterflies!  Little kids can observe the bugs (the ones that don't sting) with a magnifying glass and describe what they see. Older children can talk about insect classifications and the benefits of some bugs.

Grow A Vegetable Garden:
Turn a salad into a science lesson! A vegetable garden is full of botany lessons for kids. Plant a family garden this summer and talk with your kids about what plants need in order to grow. Have kids identify whether the ingredients are a fruit (tomato), a root (carrot), a legume (peapod), or a flower (broccoli). If you are considering doing some Earth-friendly composting as a practical backyard science lesson- Check out our April E-News for our Compost in a Cup at-home experiment!

School's out for the summer season, but science fun is always in season! Whether your summer vacation includes traveling or staying at home, the possibilities for summer science discovery and exploration are as great as your imagination! The great outdoors is the ideal laboratory, so encourage your young scientists to get outside this summer to explore the world around them. Science is a great way for parents and children to spend time together while making their summer vacation fun, exciting and productive!
