As adults, it’s easy to complain about the more difficult concepts of science (junior year O-Chem, anyone?) However, we should all take a moment to reflect on the fact that when you’re a kid, learning about science is actually pretty epic.

That’s because basic science concepts are best explained through experimentation – and what little scientist doesn’t like to get his or her hands dirty? These DIY experiments extend well beyond the baking soda and vinegar volcanoes of the world. They are fun to do, easy to follow, and totally educational. In fact, you might even have more fun doing them than your child.

What do you think?
