Looking for Science Experiments for Your Kids?

by Creation Museum on April 30, 2020

While the Creation Museum and our sister attraction, the Ark Encounter, are temporarily closed due to the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation, we’ve been streaming science experiments that your kids will love. Starting next week, we will host “Unlocking Science” on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2 p.m. (ET) and “Hands-on Science” on Fridays at 2 p.m. (ET).

Roger Patterson leads these live programs, which are streamed to the Creation Museum’s Facebook page and archived on the Answers in Genesis YouTube channel. They are a great opportunity for children, homeschool families, and “stuck at home” families to learn how to understand operational science from a biblical perspective.

Here is a sample of the different fields of science you can explore through these science experiments.

Astronomy: How Far Is That Star?

Without a very long tape measure, how do astronomers measure the distance to a star?

Biology: Monsters in the Water

What is lurking in the pond?

Chemistry: Controlling Combustion

WARNING: Fire! Without thousands of controlled explosions, you wouldn’t be able to drive to the grocery store to get food for your family. Let’s learn about how we control combustion reactions.

Genetics: DNA Juice

Sucking the life out of a strawberry! DNA extraction made easy.

Forensics: Fingerprints at Home

Every fingerprint is unique. Learn how you can look at your own amazing prints!

Physics: Crash Force

Things collide around you all the time. Let’s learn about force!
