Abstract

Science in Quarantine: Experimenting from Home is an interactive, take-home style packet composed of different science experiments that can be done with common materials found around the house. The project features a culmination of 11 different science experiments and is geared towards students at the intermediate- and middle-school levels of education. All the experiments have been thoroughly designed and tested in such a way which enables the student to have an easy time navigating which experiment appeals to them, as well as the actual performance of the experiment of interest. Experiments within this project aim to cover multiple aspects of science, including chemistry, biology, physics, and psychology. Past the title page, the experiments begin. They do not have to be done in any order and students can choose which experiment to try based on personal interest or which materials are readily available. As a project which originated during a global pandemic, the goal is to bring science home for students who may have been in the classroom less this academic year.
