Outdoor Maker Lab
Capture young scientists' imaginations with unmissable outdoor experiments
Brimming with exciting projects to help budding boffins explore the science of their surroundings. Using easy-to-find everyday materials, these are science experiments to do at home and in the garden.
Written by Robert Winston, Outdoor Lab is an unmissable outdoor approach to science and STEM learning. Kids can extract DNA from strawberries to learn about genetic traits, make a model of tectonic plates to understand earthquakes, and make a wormery to learn about 'useful waste'. These wonderful experiments will help kids to understand our world and beyond by building a telescope and looking at the planets and stars or make a bottle rocket to learn about Newton's laws of physics.
Outdoor Lab uses real-world examples and an irresistible mix of craft activities and experiments to get young scientists excited from the get-go.
