Many moms have a bit of a love/hate relationship with summer vacation. On one hand, not having to get everyone dressed and out the door in the morning has obvious benefits. On the other hand, many moms are frantically searching for ways to fill the long summer days.
Scientific Explorer has a great way for you to keep kids busy this summer! The Scientific Explorer Virtual Science Fair is going on right now and you can participate from your own home.
Scientific Explorer has some great hands-on science kits to help your kids explore some of their favorite topics if you need some help getting started or you can let your kids get creative and come up with a science project on their own.
How to Enter the Virtual Science Fair
To enter, you must submit a video, sharing how they enjoy and learn science. The video must be submitted as a response to any video on the Scientific Explorer YouTube Channel. Each month we’ll select a winner of the Virtual Science Fair to showcase and reward with a $50 gift card and free Scientific Explorer products. Entries must be submitted by midnight EST on the last day of the month. Entries submitted after midnight will be included for consideration for the following month’s contest.
Join us on Thursday, June 16, 2011 at 9:00 p.m. EST / 6:00 p.m. PST to chat with @SciExplorer and brainstorm ways you can get your kids excited about science over their summer vacation.
