Real-world science, at home: Become an honourary scientist with SRC

Posted on August 09, 2017

The Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) is encouraging people (kids and adults!) to turn their kitchens and backyards into science labs this summer and unleash their inner scientist!

We’ve created three easy, at-home science experiments that use simple and safe ingredients. Make a sparkly geode out of an egg shell, build a mini catapult and see your DNA to try a fun, hands-on learning experience in the science, technology, engineering and math disciplines. Each experiment comes with a short step-by-step video and a detailed instruction sheet with an ingredients list.

Parents and kids can find everything they need at www.src.sk.ca/beascientist, including an Honourary Scientist certificate to hang proudly on their fridge. Try the experiments and tag your results #sciencewithsrc. Learn more about the creation of our science experiments on our blog in Hot Summer, Cool Science
