Summer Science Projects

Whether you are hiking, camping, visiting a lake or ocean, playing in your neighborhood park, touring a national park, or exploring your own backyard, there are tons of science activities you can do with things that are all around you! Take these opportunities to go bird watching, find unique plants, collect weird rocks, or discover new insects. Try some of these projects to get outside, have fun, and enjoy science. This site has projects for older students, with ideas like building an earth wormery, growing crystals, a model roller coaster, pizza box solar oven, a water purifier and easy solar prints.
