Steve Spangler Science Review

by contributing writer Colleen

I’ve homeschooled now for several years, and in that time I’ve found lots of great, good, and mediocre resources for teaching different subjects. Most I just use as a springboard to other ideas; a jumping off point. Some I use as a go-to anytime I need something hands-on to do with my kids.

Steve Spangler Science is one of my go-tos.

Steve Spangler Science

An author, teacher, toy-inventor, and science personality, Steve Spangler knows how to make science fun for kids. His blog features simple experiments, projects, and demonstrations that are easily done at home with readily-available materials. His books, like the one pictured above, are fun, and they engage kids right off the bat.

Are you a bit science-phobic?

The Steve Spangler store has science kits and supplies that make it easy for even the most reluctant homeschool mom to bring some hands-on fun into the school week. There are science toys and other great gift ideas organized by age, and easy-to-use examples of how to do the experiments he shares.

What I love best about Steve Spangler, his inventions, books, and blog, is that he loves science and wants to inspire that love in kids everywhere.

Encouraging kids to wonder and explore their world is important if we are to bring up a generation of lifelong learners and thinkers. This guy gets that.
