Scientific Explorer and Elmer’s Science Fair Giveaway

  • 137 comments

If you have children, then you know your kids will soon be busy with their school’s science fair project. To help young scientists with their science projects, Scientific Explorer (Twitter | Facebook) and Elmer’s (Twitter | Facebook) are giving away two Science Fair Prize Packages on my giveaway blog (2 winners). The science pack consists of a Scientific Explorer Lava-Blasting Volcano Science Kit, Elmer’s Foam Board, and Elmer’s Project Popperz accessories (cool letters, shapes, borders and stencils).

Scientific Explorer and Elmer's Science Fair Prize Package

As many dads and moms know, Scientific Explorer offers a variety of science kits for children. We’re having fun with the lava volcano science kit (currently waiting for the volcano plaster to dry). I have not checked with the school about this yet, but I think we can actually use the kit as a science fair project by trying out different baking soda solutions for the eruptions.

Here is something I didn’t know until I was contacted about this giveaway: Elmer’s offers products to help kids with their science fair presentations (I thought they were just a glue company). Products like display boards, foam sheets, markers, stencils, borders, letters/numbers, and of course, glue. The Little Princess plans on using her Elmer’s supplies to put together her display this year (she can’t wait to use the markers and letters on the foam boards).

Virtual Science Fair
Scientific Explorer has created a Virtual Science Fair on YouTube. Scientific Explorer is encouraging kids, parents, teachers to share how they learn and experience science, inside and outside the classroom. And if you post a video response to one of their videos, you can win a $50 gift card and free Scientific Explorer products. They’re going to select a Virtual Science Fair winner each month. Here is the first Virtual Science Fair video:

  8. My son would like to create a battery-powered robot and a solar-powered robot and compare the energy consumption vs. output of work of each. He’s in eighth grade this year and this will be his last science fair project :(

  9. What a great giveaway. Jesse loves the water crystals that go in Christmas tree stands and help with keeping the tree hydrated. We have a whole bag of them and tint them different colors with food coloring. He watches them grow then shrink over a week. Very cool!

  10. she did an experiment called why do onions make you cry! I loved it- and it was informative and studied other things that make you cry like apple cider vinagar

  14. My son had his first science display and experiment this year, of course he went with the mentos and soda rocket blast. I ended up purchasing supplies for every kid in his class, they all made their own rockets and shot them in the air. They had a blast!

  16. My son is working on an experiment with dam’s and different kinds of materials that will can be used to make a dam

  17. My daughter’s science fair project last year was about the effect that different music has on mice and it was awesome and difficult! She trained all the mice to go thru the maze and then tested them again after they were exposed to music periodically….Supposedly mice who listen to heavy metal get slower and mice who listen to classical get quicker…and it really worked!

  18. the latest project we did was to see if seeds can grow without soil,it was fun and interesting.and it did work
