What… now I have to do science?

YES, you, too, can do science at home!

You might be wondering how to keep your children or students involved? What online tools are there that are educational? Or, how do I replicate experiences that are normally interactive, hands-on, require equipment, or are outdoors?

As an environmental educator (and mom) that spends the majority of my days outside with youth and adults, I, too, am struggling with our new education challenges. I have compiled a list of science-based resources below to assist students, parents, and teachers in the explorations of science.

Getting ourselves outdoors is also more important than ever, so whether you have a sidewalk, a backyard, or a natural area that you can safely visit… take your kids and yourself outside for fun, fresh air, and some science! Stay tuned for more information on science and nature at home from UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County!

  1. Thanks Katherine,
    These are great resources. I can’t wait to share them with my parents and use them myself in my new online lessons.
    Thank you for putting this list together.
