Discover ice science! Paint with ice, fish for ice, build sculptures, and more! Ten simple ice science and engineering ideas to keep the kids learning.
Winter is the perfect time to have some fun with ice science. Over the past few months I have been delighted to see so many great ways to learn with ice in our STEM Saturday Linkup. The thing I love most about these activities is that they are all very easy to set up since they only use basic household materials. Plus, they are uniquely educational, fun, creative, and simple to clean up, too!
Pull out your ice cubes and get ready to learn ice science and engage in unique engineering activities!
