Bristlebot robots are fun to build, and Science Buddies offers directions for several variations. The Advanced Bristlebot kit from the Science Buddies Store lets kids experiment with both a light-tracking bot and a solar-powered bot. We gave the solar-powered one a spring break try!   #STEM   #engineering   #robotics  
Adding solar panels to a brushbot project gives a new twist to an intermediate robotics building activity, but does it offer more power? With this clever build and a kit from the Science Buddies Store, it was easy to put that question to the test! Advanced Bristlebot Solar-Powered Kit and ...

Ovoid is not the only shape for a hard-boiled egg! This year, give new shape to your hard-boiled eggs with a fun hands-on #science activity. The trick to the transformation is understanding the science behind the process of hard-boiling.   #STEM  +Scientific American 
Hard-boiling and dyeing eggs is a Spring tradition in many households. This year, give your hard-boiled eggs a twist and turn ordinary ovoid hard-boiled eggs into fun shapes! The trick to the transformation is understanding the science behind the process of hard-boiling.

NEW Science Buddies Project Idea: "Take a Candle Carousel for a Spin"--investigate the relationship between the number of lit candles under a candle carousel and how fast it spins.   #science #STEM
Build a homemade candle carousel and investigate how the amount of heat under the carousel’s blades affects how quickly they spin.

How do sugar substitutes and sugar compare in terms of sweetness? Mix up some homemade lemonade and put it to the test in a family-friendly kitchen #science activity. (Or, students can set up serial dilutions following the Science Buddies procedure for a full science fair project on this topic!)
+Scientific American 
#STEM  
How do sugar-free substitutes compare to sugar in terms of sweetness? Whether you make something sugar-free to cut calories or carbohydrates or for medical reasons, there are a wide range of sugar alternatives available. But how do these substances compare in terms of taste?

Considering #science- and #engineering-themed activities for the summer (or the weekend)? Check our tips for doing family #robotics at home.  #STEM
Introductory robotics projects made with toothbrush heads and other household materials can be a great way to let kids explore hands-on electronics and robotics. We have tips and reminders to help your family robotics project be fun for everyone and a science education success.

If your kids love creative projects, they may really enjoy the fun new paper circuits activity at Science Buddies! With copper tape, a coin cell battery, and LEDs, kids can "light up" their art in exciting ways (and learn about circuits along the way). #STEM  
The intersection between art and science is one that holds particular interest for me, and I very much appreciate when my kids have the opportunity to do projects that support their creativity as well as let them get hands-on with science, technology, engineering, and math.

Get your rolling pins and memorization skills ready. Tomorrow is Pi Day! Pi Day is a great chance for families to have some fun with math, memorization, and maybe celebratory pie. Be sure to catch the very special TIME tomorrow, too. See if your student can figure out what's so cool about 9:26 tomorrow! #STEM  
Tomorrow, March 14, 2014 is Pi Day, and we hate to let a Pi Day go by without an extra nod of the head to Pi, in all its varieties. Whether you celebrate Pi Day with a brief recitation of the digits of Pi you know, with a homemade or store-bought pie you can eat, or with pizza, we encourage you ...
