Our goal has always been and will always be to create amazing experiences that make people of all ages fall in love with science. Our founders, Steve & Renee Spangler, originally set out to make science fun for school-age children with a traveling science show that toured elementary schools throughout the country. Flying toilet paper, erupting potions and just a few explosions grabbed the attention of millions of children and educators around the country. Over 4,500 shows later, the dynamic duo had a better idea of what children liked and the resources educators really needed in their classrooms to build meaningful connections to the emerging national standards. But at the heart of it all, the Spanglers wanted to create experiences that would help students and teachers fall in love with science.
We’ve come a long way since those days on the road traveling from school to school. The business that started in a back bedroom and quickly consumed every square foot of garage space now offers more than 350 products created by an amazing team of educators, scientists, engineers and big kids at heart who are passionate about inspiring the next generation of STEMologists. Our science videos on YouTube have more than 225 million views and growing. Our online science experiment library is one of the largest and most respected resources online today for parents and educators. Some of our most famous science toys like Steve’s Mentos & Diet Coke Geyser have earned a place in pop-culture, and our classics like Insta-Snow® Powder, the Energy Stick and Spangler Slime Art have become a classroom staple for thousands of educators around the globe. The Spangler Science Club offers subscribers a monthly science box filled with the coolest science experiments and STEM challenges that keep the love of learning alive at home.
