Looking for a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon? Experience the excitement of being a scientist by designing and running your own science experiments! Whether you’re creating volcanic lava out of baking soda and vinegar or bending light with a soda can, you’re bound to have a good time.
The possibilities for intergenerational connections through science experiments are limitless. With the support of the Verizon Foundation and resources on Thinkfinity.org, this guide provides brief activity descriptions geared toward a broad range of ages. We encourage you to submit additional suggestions and to connect with other older adults in an online user group for grandparents and volunteers with similar interests.
