a website of experiments for children

To stimulate both children and their teachers to do science the Proefjes ('little experiments') foundation has constructed an educational website for children, age 8-12. The site offers instructions for simple science experiments in the field of physics, chemistry, and physiology. Children can carry out these experiments all by themsleves, using cheap household materials. Every experiment is accompanied by questions, and explanations contain starting points for more advanced study. Teachers may download strings of thematically linked experiments, which combine into ready made science lessons, including printable work sheets and instruction manuals, free of charge. Everything is put into work to make science experiments fun, easy to do an inexpensive.
