Putting science in the mix for kids over Christmas

One for your kids, perhaps, if you are looking to mix in a bit of science with Christmas over the holidays…

The people behind the Big Bang Fair (for UK Young Scientists & Engineers) have teamed up with TV science presenter Greg Foot to come up with twelve possible experiments to keep little proto-Gadget Masters entertained over Christmas. “Christmas Connections” is shown above.

From making it snow indoors to creating candy canes, we’ve produced these simple and fun videos along with some easy-to-follow instructions to help you overcome Christmas cabin fever.

Find out how science and engineering plays a part in Christmas festivities using nothing more than wrapping paper tubes, selection box leftovers, unwanted Brussels sprouts and other festive bits and pieces.

Check out their “big book of experiments”, where you can find videos of all the experiments >>
