Hands-On Home Science Lab (August)

Welcome to Hands-on Home Science Lab 117 through Varsity Tutors!

My name is Dr. Rachel and I am excited to introduce you to some cool topics and conduct a few experiments!

From August 17th to August 21st, we will explore topics ranging from genetics to the geology in engaging ways. Each day, I will introduce important background information and vocabulary to create a foundation for the lesson. Then, I will guide you through an activity or experiment that relates to the topic we are covering that day. At the end, we will summarize what we learned and answer questions. Please keep in mind that there are A LOT of students attending this virtual summer camp so I will answer as many questions as possible throughout the lesson.

Below is the schedule for this week and associated worksheets. The worksheet have background information as well as materials and instructions for each activity. Many of the materials can be found in your home or purchased at a low cost. I also provide a few alternatives that can be used.

I am really looking forward to sharing my love for science with you!

~Dr. Rachel
