Outdoor Maker Lab
Brimming with exciting projects to help budding boffins explore the science of their surroundings. Using easy-to-find everyday materials, these are science experiments to do at home and in the garden.
Written by Robert Winston, Outdoor Maker Lab is an unmissable outdoor approach to science and STEM learning. Kids can extract DNA from strawberries to learn about genetic traits, make a model of tectonic plates to understand earthquakes, and make a wormery to learn about ‘useful waste’. These wonderful experiments will help kids to understand our world and beyond by building a telescope and looking at the planets and stars or make a bottle rocket to learn about Newton’s laws of physics.
Outdoor Maker Lab uses real-world examples and an irresistible mix of craft activities and experiments to get young scientists excited from the get-go.

Little scientists will discover why water goes stiff in the freezer, what makes slime super stretchy, how to make the best soap bubbles, and lots more. With Look I’m a Scientist children can touch, smell, see, hear, and taste their way to scientific amazement!
Being a scientist isn’t just about wearing a lab coat and performing science experiments in test tubes. It’s about looking at the world and trying to figure out how it works. As well as simple science experiments for kids to try, How to Be a Scientist will teach them how to think like a scientist and ask questions including: why doesn’t pineapple jelly set, how do you grow your own crystals, and how does a black and white image turn to colour?
For every scientific concept the child learns they will be encouraged to find new ways to test it further. Fun questions, science games, and real-life scenarios make science relevant to children. In How to be a Scientist the emphasis is on inspiring kids, which means less time spent in stuffy labs and more time in the real world!
