New Kit from Science Buddies Store!


Advanced Bristlebot kit in the Science Buddies Store


The new Advanced Bristlebot Kit from the Science Buddies Store brings new challenge and fun to students who have already built introductory robots like the Artbot, Brushbot, or Bristlebot. With the advanced robotics kit, students can build either a light-tracking robot or a robot that uses solar panels for power. Build one, take it apart, and build the other! 

Planning ahead? This is a great engineering science activity to keep students challenged during a school break!

Diabetes Science Projects

From Artificial Pancreas Research to Cloud Services, Type 1 Diabetes Invites New Solutions

November is Diabetes Awareness month. Students can learn more about Type 1 diabetes and current research projects and then tackle their own science project that intersects with Type 1 Diabetes in biomedical engineering, computer science, or health and human biology. 


In the advanced Dealing with Diabetes: The Road to Developing an Artificial Pancreas project, students combine electronics and acid/base chemistry to explore issues related to artificial pancreas research.


Science Buddies Project Ideas that support student exploration of diabetes and other global health issues like hemophilia and nutrition are sponsored by Novo Nordisk.

Fun Robotics Activity for Families!


Brushbot robotics activity


See how this family used the Brushbot science activity as a way to experiment with robotics and to celebrate the Halloween season! We challenge you to make a turkey-themed Brushbot for Thanksgiving.

A kit is available that contains electronics parts for the Brushbot as well as other robotics projects.

Science Buddies Project Ideas and Activities in robotics are supported by
Symantec Corporation, Northrop Grumman, and the Best Buy Foundation.


Show Off Your Project with a Great Display Board!


Project Display Board

You can't finish the project display board until you are all the way done with your science experiment. But you can get started on certain parts of the board at any point in the project! 

For more Project Display Board information, see our Project Display Board guide and Perfecting the Project Display Board.

The Science Buddies Project Guide is sponsored, in part, by Elmer's Products, Inc., our official classroom sponsor.

Halloween Science Projects

Halloween Science Projects are Fun, Not Scary

Every year, we pull together an assortment of great ideas for hands-on science that you can tie in with Halloween themes and celebrations. This year, we have our best Halloween-themed collection ever! October is over, but you can do these projects and activities with your students at any time of the year. Check out the full roundup (including a lava lamp, glowing tonic water, dough-based electronics, LED costume accessories, and more). And don't miss our special candy corn geodesic dome build.


Making Student Science Connections

Baseball Science During the Off-season

The World Series ended with a close game between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants. The season is over, but the off-season is a great time to keep baseball fever going with baseball sports science projects!

Further Student Interest with Real-world Science News 


Science Buddies just launched an exciting "newsfeed" feature that helps students relate the science in their projects or interest area to science news. Related news stories appear in search results and can also be found on the Background and Learn More tabs of individual Science Buddies Project Ideas. Give the newsfeed a try, and let us know what you think! 

Support for the development of this new feature was provided by the Cisco Foundation.




What is Your Science Project? 


Send us photos of your students' projects. Your students might end up featured in a success story on the Science Buddies Blog, in the spotlight at FacebookTwitter, Google+, or in the newsletter. Let us know, in photos, how the science project went!
