I’m excited to be partnering with your school to bring you a fun science night! You’ll see explosions and the force of expanding gases. You’ll learn about a few scientific principles and parts of the scientific method, and a bunch of other things. And there are several demonstrations that you can try at home!
We’ll be starting at November 19, at 6pm. Our preshow will start at 5:45pm for any early birds, so join a few minutes early so we can all can ready to go!
Topic: YUCK SCIENCE Family Night w/ Exley Elementary
Time: Nov 19, 2020 06:00 PM
Meeting ID: 688 938 9741
Parents, I suggest this evening be a parent-child activity. There will be cool things to see that you will enjoy too, and some of the experiments will work best with a little help from an adult. Our science activities are all safe, but a workspace like a kitchen table, counter, or hard floor may be ideal for ease of clean up. It is possible an ounce or two of water may get away from you when we make film canister rockets. Don’t set up for this one on Great Aunt Mildred’s antique dining room table!
If you don’t have some of these supplies, don’t worry! We are going to be doing a lot of different things, and you will have fun no matter what!
- Alka Seltzer tablets
- Film canister
- Bendable straw
- Ping pong ball
- Water bottle (preferably the thin plastic kind that crinkles a bit when you press on it)
- Hair dryer, plugged in and ready to go! (if you don’t have this, you can do the same experiment, just in a different way)
- Measuring cup and spoon (they might make things easier)
- trash bag or similar to lay out for a workspace
Questions or Comments?
Students, if you have any questions you do not get to ask during the show, I will also respond to any comments left at the very bottom of this page or in any the public comment sections of the Yuck for Kids blog or Yuck Show social media, even after the show. I’ve even helped students with their science homework a few times. 🙂
I would love to hear from you in any public space, but please understand that I cannot respond to private emails from students.
Parents, if you would enjoy sharing photos of your child’s experiments or any show-related drawings they might make, etc, I would enjoy featuring some of their work in future Yuck for Kids blog posts. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to share.
The Yuck for Kids science blog is where I share new science videos, projects, and fun facts, recently on at least a weekly basis. If you would like to be among the first to see those posts, you can sign up in the black field just below!
The science-themed music in the preshow sequence is by Reed and Caroline and is used with the permission of Very Records. The band and their label are so enthusiastic about the music being used to promote science education, I wanted to give them a mention. If you’d like to hear more, a free YouTube playlist is located here, or their music is available from most music distribution platforms as well.
Thanks also to the Exley Elementary PTA for making our evening together possible. I’m looking forward to meeting you all!
