virtual science for kids

You CAN foster your children's natural curiosity

and INSPIRE them to become

future scientists and innovators...

and it all starts with the Jarring Science Club.

Sounds, awesome, I'm in!

How can a homeschooling parent teach science without formal training?

Because science does NOT provide all the answers. 

The goal of science is to look at the world in a new way. That's why science has no "right" answers.

Science teaches us to be skeptical

of what we know today so that past scientific “conclusions” can be modified when we understand more of our world.

Teaching a child to think through the lens of science leads to discoveries that make a positive difference. And you don't need a science degree for that.

Meet Brenda MacArthur.

I must confess: I used to hate science. I thought it was the most boring subject in school.

But in 2011, when my then 4-year-old daughter started asking questions about how the world works, I knew I needed to find a way to keep her curiosity alive so she wouldn't hate science like I did.

It was difficult to find hands-on science experiments that were appropriate for 4-year-olds, so I started creating experiments that I knew would be entertaining and educational.

This strategy worked so well that soon other homeschooling parents were asking me for my lesson plans, and I found myself teaching science to a group of elementary kids. I decided to put my activities online, and was born.

Since the founding of STEAMsational in 2011, I have worked as a STEM curriculum developer, author, speaker, and teacher. In these roles, I've been able to help over 100,000 homeschooling parents, teachers, and organizations make science the most fun part of the day.

I created the Jarring Science Club as a hub for homeschooling parents and teachers to find low-cost, low-prep science lesson plans. After trying your first experiment, don't be surprised if your kids start begging to do "just one more, please?!"

I love this idea, sign me up!

Why should science be hands-on?

Science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov called science "a way of thinking" and that's what we believe in the Jarring Science Club. 

  • We don't believe that science is learned through a textbook. 
  • We believe kids should explore their world hands on.
  • We believe kids should be free to discover their own answers.
  • We believe that hands on experiments can facilitate these discoveries for our kids.

Children’s experiences help them form their ideas, but these ideas don't always align with scientific "facts."

We believe kids should be free to explore these "wrong" ideas without feeling stupid, judged, or shamed.

Something special happens when our children define themselves as scientists, inventors, and creators. Suddenly, they embrace "difficult" concepts with determination, logic, critical thinking, and creativity. And this mindset shift can be life changing.

You don't have to be a scientist to teach science, and you don't need expensive tools or supplies...

Who is the Jarring Science Club for?

Children learn science best and understand ideas best when they are presented in a hands-on way. The Jarring Science Club is for any child who loves science and for kids who think they don't love science.

Each lesson includes a visual component, a reading section, a hands-on experiment, and worksheets to ensure every style of learner can gain maximum value from each lesson.

What grades are included in the club?

The Jarring Science Club projects are designed for kids ages 5-15.

What sort of experiments are included? 

The Jarring Science Club is constantly evolving. We include science demonstrations to illustrate specific scientific concepts, open-ended science exploration to boost critical thinking, NGSS-aligned lesson plans, and science projects that kids can use for science fair projects.
