20 Simple Physics Activities Science Experiments STEM projects for kids

 

WHAT IS PHYSICS?

Physics is most simply put as the study of matter and energy and the interaction between the two. How did the Universe begin? You might not have the answer to that question! However, you can pull off these cool physics activities to get your kids thinking, observing, questioning, and experimenting.

HOW TO EXPLORE PHYSICS

Try these simple physics concepts such as magnetism, gravity, circuits, sound, optics, fluid in motion, mechanics, heat, and dynamics {plus much more}. These simple science activities make for playful experimenting and discovering with new concepts. For younger kids, I try to give a few simple facts. With older kids, you can get more in depth with the concepts presented.
