FUN PHYSICS CAMP IDEAS FOR SUMMER

Physics Summer Camp

SUMMER KIDS PHYSICS CAMP

Physics for kids can be so much fun! While it may sound like a difficult subject reserved for high school students and older, physics is actually incorporated in a lot of ways in our lives from a very young age!

These physics experiments for a whole week of Physics Summer Camp are so much fun! They will teach kids about air pressure, surface tension, buoyancy, and more!

PHYSICS ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS THIS SUMMER

Summer can be a busy time, so we didn’t add any projects that will take a ton of time or prep to make these activities possible. Most of these can be done quickly, with variations, reflection, and questions extending the activity as you have time to do so. However, if you have the time, feel free to linger and enjoy the activities too!

SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS FOR KIDS

Science learning starts early, and you can be a part of that by setting up science at home with everyday materials. Or you can bring easy science experiments to a group of kids in the classroom!

We find a ton of value in cheap science activities and experiments. All our science experiments use inexpensive, everyday materials you can find at home or source from your local dollar store.

You can set up your science experiments as an activity focusing on exploration and discovery. Make sure to ask kids questions at each step, discuss what is happening and talk about the science behind it.

Alternatively, you can introduce the scientific method, get kids to record their observations, and make conclusions. Read more about the scientific method for kids to help you get started.

FLOATING PENNIES

Have fun with this tinfoil boat experiment! Let kids guess just how many pennies they can make float!

RISING WATER

You don’t need much to do this experiment! A candle, some water, a glass jar, and a bowl and then watch the magic water rise!

VORTEX CANNON

This Vortex Cannon you can make yourself is such a fun way to learn about physics! Kids love playing and learning with this project!

MAGIC PEPPER

Make magic pepper with a few supplies you probably already have on hand! This is such a great way to learn about surface tension!

WATER XYLOPHONE

Make your very own musical instrument with this water xylophone experiment! Kids love seeing how the water levels change the tone!

DANCING RAISINS

Compare and contrast different types of sodas and see how well they can make raising dance! This is such a fun experiment to show how buoyancy works!

CRUSHED CAN SCIENCE

This crushed can science is a great way to showcase the changing of states of matter! Watch this can crush without anyone touching it!

DIY HOVERCRAFT

This DIY Hovercraft will easily demonstrate how air pressure works in such a fun way! You don’t need much to make this awesome experiment!

PAPER CUP WINDMILL

Kids can make their very own windmill with this easy-to-make experiment! Help kids channel their inner engineers to learn about this renewable energy option!
