Whether in schools or at home, science experiments can be simple, fun and interesting while presenting valuable learning opportunities for children. We have compiled a number of our favourite experiments on this page for you to use. The objective is to make science interesting using everyday products available in the home.
The experiments are divided into two age groups: from 8-11 years of age (primary school) and from 12-17 (secondary school). In some cases, they are repeated in both age groups with a different level of focus and complexity. With experiments adapted to different ages, the motive is to make science attractive, stimulate curiosity and unlock some of the mystery that surrounds many of our everyday activities and products in the home.
Curiosity in science starts when students are quite young and P&G is dedicated to doing all it can to support teachers in developing lessons that attract students’ interest, make science fun and open up further studies. For best results and safe use, we recommend that you strictly follow the procedures and apply the safety advice.
The experiments are provided freely to whoever is interested without any commercial objectives. As some of these experiments have external sources (who have kindly given their permission to P&G to reproduce them), we would appreciate that you acknowledge these sources and Science-in-the-box in any reproduction or development.
Please send us your feedback so we can continue to improve these experiments.
