Playing with Raspberry Pi


Raspberry Pi Book Review
The Raspberry Pi Projects Kit from the Science Buddies Store is a great way for kids to explore computer coding and electronics while working on a series of creative projects

Adventures in Raspberry Pi by Carrie Anne Philbin is a good resource for supplemental information while using the kit and for additional projects that can be tackled after students complete the Science Buddies kit activities. 

The Raspberry Pi Projects Kit was developed with support from Symantec,
Best Buy Foundation, Raspberry Pi Foundation, Oracle Foundation, and Google RISE.


Science Activities for the Whole Family


Splitting Ink: Family Science
What colors make up a certain color ink in a favorite color of marker? Find out with a family chromatography science activity. You can use the same process to investigate the dye colors that make up candy coatings, too!  

Photography Family Science
What makes a great photo great? Do the photos you like most use a certain strategy for positioning the subject? Explore "golden" rules of composition in this family science activity and improve your photography skills.

Family Science Physics

Look through water drops to learn more about the physics of magnification.


Use water drops on a penny to investigate the physics of surface tension.


Family science activities are supported by Motorola Solutions Foundation. 


Science-themed Summer Reading


In book four of the Nick and Tesla series, the twins are stuck in a museum mystery filled with malfunctioning animatronic scientists and a giant dancing owl. The kids engineer a gadget glove that introduces readers to a set of fun DIY wearable electronics projects! Read along and build your own gadget glove with directions in the book or a related Science Buddies project!

Book Review
This story puts the engineering design process in action and in the hands of a charming young girl who has an idea for something she wants to build--something magnificent--and sets out to bring her idea to life. Follow along as she works on her idea, prototype by prototype, until she finally makes exactly what she had in mind.



Biochemistry You Can See


Biochemistry Science
A test tube of phytoplankton offers a no-mess way to let kids observe biochemical processes, circadian rhythms, and bioluminescence. Phytoplankton live longer than popular fireflies, which makes them a great option for home science.

Light up summer science with an unusual biochemistry investigation with your kids!
Science Buddies' Project Ideas in Biotechnology are sponsored by the Amgen Foundation.
