Just in time for the back-to-school season, students can continue exploring their interest in science beyond the school day through the MilliporeSigma Curiosity Labs™ at Home science education program.
The MilliporeSigma Curiosity Labs™ at Home program is designed using hands-on science experiments and lessons from MilliporeSigma’s core science education efforts, including Curiosity Labs™ and the Curiosity Cube® mobile science lab. The series of educational science experiments can be completed easily at home with materials typically found around the house.
Explore the entire catalog of the MilliporeSigma Curiosity Labs™ at Home experiments and activities, including:
