‘Scientific American’ Launches Initiative for Kids


Learn about an oobleck with Scientific American

Scientific American has launched “Bring Science Home,” a month-long online campaign to inspire kids to take an interest in science. The program’s goal is to show that science is part of the everyday, and proposes science activities that kids and their parents can do for just a few minutes per day using things lying around the house.

The campaign is part of the “Change the Equation” program, a public-private partnership that strives to increase science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) literacy in this country. Nature Publishing Group, which owns Scientific American, joined the initiative in 2010.

A new activity will be introduced each day (today’s is focused gravity and Newton’s First Law of Motion) and all activities will be shared on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter as well as the magazine’s website.
