3 Steps to Induce Science Curiosity in Kids


Summer is in full swing. The kids are most likely complaining of boredom and mom is pulling her hair out.  What to do?

Science doesn’t  have to be a boring classroom subject.  Stepping out into the back yard can bring an entire science lesson to life.  Or creating an afternoon treat in the kitchen can be a very tasy experiment.

Science is everywhere.  Like it or not our world is one big piece of everyday science.  Honing in on the natural curiosity that  kids have can bring a life long passion for our surroundings and how they work.

There are 3 ways to get kids to become interested in all things science.

  1. Get out of their way.  Let kids touch, play, dig, explore the world around them.
  2. Share your own interests.  If you have a passion for cooking- share it.  If you have a passion for fixing car engines- share it.  Science comes in all forms and introducing kids to different avenues can be very  rewarding.
  3. Keep it as hands on as possible like getting dirty while planting a garden just adds to the experience.

There are many ways to explore and to become mini scientists.  Keep kids learning- even while on summer break. Encourage them to figure things out and to develop a passion for the world around them.
