The dates for Science in the Rockies are etched in stone. Mark your calendar for August 3-5, 2006 (that's Thursday through Sunday) in Denver, Colorado for another year of bubble blowing, slime-making, potato launching fun... educationally speaking, of course. Last year we had 99 teachers who attended our summer workshop and a small handful were brave enough to do a few [...]
There’s a saying in my head that food is the essence of life. And since science is the understanding of life, it only makes sense that when you can involve food in your science demonstrations, projects, and experiments, you most definitely should involve food in your science demonstrations.
Whether you call it kitchen science or delicious science or any number of cute [...]

Our science kits are also not exempt from the selfie craze.
We gave our science kits a one week summer vacation and let them lose in the world. [...]
It's a good day. The sun is warm and the popsicles are cool...and you're shopping on SteveSpanglerScience.com.

(Of course it was a little more than you wanted to spend, but the kids are worth [...]
The staff at Steve Spangler Science has a reputation for playing and having fun at our jobs. A requirement for working here is being a kid at heart.
When the boss is a big kid himself, you have to have a playful side to survive. We work hard and play just as hard at the Spangler Labs.
This helps when we are tasked [...]

We love the Junior Ranger programs and have attended quite a few over the years. Kids as young [...]
One of our favorite kid scientists, Doctor Mad Science, was featured last week in the New York Daily News. His science videos share DIY science experiments and activities to an audience of kids and their parents.
We were introduced to 11-year-old Jordan Hilkowitz a few years ago. He is an amazing online video star who shares his versions of kid-friendly science experiments [...]
