Event description: 

Remember our Eureka! contest?  Thanks to the pandemic and the alterations in our life that it has caused, we decided to re-orient our energies and effort slightly to help many of you who are suddenly faced with the task of educating your kids at home.  In collaboration with MIT’s Full Steam Ahead Project, who have considerable expertise in early childhood education, and keeping with the Franke Program spirit, we would like to offer videos that teach basic scientific concepts using creative and original visual means unrestricted by disciplinary boundaries.  

In order to help engage young curious minds, we have embarked on this project to collate 100 simple science experiments that can be done at home with simple everyday materials.  We are soliciting ideas from everyone.  Details can be found on the project website.

Please submit your ideas for videos of experiments;  if selected, you will be invited to send in your video.  Plus, everyone is invited to also upload their own versions of the selected videos for sharing on our YouTube Channel.

Looking forward to hearing your exciting ideas!
