Science experiments and storytime from space

Uploaded: Apr 30, 2018
Our kids loved conducting science experiments with grandma. And after her visit I knew I would need to do a bit of work to top our strawberry DNA extraction experiment. When I heard about storytimefromspace.com, I was intrigued. How fun to see and hear real astronauts reading children's books and conducting science experiments in space!

If you have a budding scientist at home, check out storytimefromspace.com. Our favorite book so far is Rosie Revere Engineer. And we are excited to see the results of their experiments when they are posted, especially the ones on buoyancy and balance.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
