Weekday Wonders is a series designed for parents and other adults who are interested in engaging children in science at home.
School may be out, but Weekday Wonders is continuing! Originally designed to help support caregivers who found themselves unexpectedly homeschooling, Weekday Wonders will continue to provide carefully curated content for your young scientist to explore while on summer vacation. Each week will mirror the theme of one of our summer camps and will include many fun, educational activities from camp that have been modified for your scientist to experience at home. These resources will continue to be written in a way that is easy for caregivers to facilitate, even while working.
Designed for young scientists in pre-kindergarten through 5th grade, Weekday Wonders are released each weekday. Many of the activities include support on how to adjust the activities to be easier for the youngest scientists or more challenging for scientists in grades 4, 5, and beyond.
The activities require minimal preparation and materials. Many young scientists will be able to complete the activities with instructions from an adult followed by time on their own.
