Sneakin' In Science Review-March

I am far from being a scientist and struggle to know how and why things are why they are. This does not please my 6 year old when he sees something sciency and wants to know "Hows" and "Whys". I purchased a science workbook that was filled with fun experiments, while we did some of them, they did not have very thorough information on what was happening and why. I wished that I could give him the answers, but fell very short. When MBP was contacted by a company awhile back, I was intrigued on what they were offering and once I read more about them, was completely on board with trying them out and sharing them with our readers. They have been the answers to my science prayers.
Sneakin' In Science is the brainchild of a middle school teacher and mom (Sara), who was looking for a way to share her super cool science experiments. Sara chose the name because she wanted to show off fun ideas that "hid" the learning but got you asking, seeking, and doing more with science. She decided to sell her experiments locally and then tried online sales, after struggling a bit at first, she now has a great thing going. Sara offers her most favorite experiments as a subscription set (1,3,6,12 months) and her website offers even more to explore and learn, so check it out! All of Sneakin' In Science's experiments are designed for kids ages 5-12, and while some concepts may be more difficult for the younger set, learning will still be going on.
Another month has come and we were lucky enough to get our second round of experiments from Sneakin' In Science. The last experiments were super well received by both kids, they couldn't wait to see what was in store this time.  To see last month's experiment and review, click here.

Our March Sneakin' In Science experiment is here!
 We opened our package to find this:
Volcano -What's a set of science kits without the vinegar and baking soda volcano? You will receive a container that will be the bones of the volcano, clay to use to design and create your volcano along with lots of information about the different types of volcanoes and what makes them erupt. Learn what it would be like to be a volcanologist. (This kit does not include the baking soda or vinegar).
The wonderful thing about Sneakin' In Science experiments is that almost everything is included, from ingredients, to very thorough directions, to explanations and information about the topic. I am fully covered on facts for the experiment, which is terrific help for a non-sciency person like myself.
Beckett couldn't wait to get started and see how much his volcano would do.
On day one, you mold the included clay around a included film canister, to look like a mountain.

Getting ready to mold our clay.
Building our mountain
Almost done
We then had to let it sit overnight to harden.
When we were finished building our clay mountain, we talked about volcanoes and learned some new terms about them. All of this information is included in very detailed notes.
Beckett was very interested in the information about Mt. Saint Helens, a former dormant volcano that became active again in 1980. We googled photos and watched Youtube videos of the mountain and even found a very informative one from geologists discussing the 1980 eruption. He was thrilled to share all of his new information with Daddy at dinner and I was thrilled that I had the information in front of me to give him the opportunity to learn.

The next day we were ready to go. I gathered the remaining needed ingredients and we got to experimenting.
 Our volcano is ready for takeoff.
 Here we go!
Our volcano was a success!
 Thanks to step-by-step instructions and provided materials, Sneakin' In Science was another hit with my kids. I was thankful for the "More About Volcanoes" section which gave me tons of additional facts and terms to give them, they wanted to learn more, and I was able to get it for them.

Sneakin' In Science also includes a "Try This" section for extra experiments that relate to the original experiment. Next up for us is creating Magma, but not the hot kind, for the kids to play with and discussions on what it is and how it is formed.

Using a phrase found on the Sneakin' In Science business card, "So much fun kids don't know they're learning", I have to agree whole heartedly.  If I had just sat down with some facts and information, they would tune me out quickly, but using the experiments and information together, my kids are interested, intrigued, and want to know more, and thanks to Sneakin' In Science, I am able to provide that for them.
Want It? Buy It!
