Exploration Boxes
Open up a box full of science!
Exploration Boxes are resources that families can use to explore materials and phenomena in a scientific way. We provide lists of materials that you may already have at home and that are widely available. The "Playful Science" part is in the activity prompts that we designed to help inspire your curiosity, ask your own questions, generate your own ideas, and test them out.
