Science Toy Maker

This teacher-created site invites kids of all ages to use science to create toys.  There are many video tutorials to guide you through a project using common household materials and no equipment more complicated than what you would find in your kitchen.  Build a robot voice box, snake charmer’s duck call, a robot hand or an air rocket, just to name a few.

From site:  Make a Science Fair Splash! You can turn the investigations that you see on DragonflyTV into your own science fair project! Every investigation featured on the show has its own Web page where the kids describe exactly what they did. It follows what they asked, what kinds of experiments they tried, and what they found out. Then, we added other ideas for even more projects for you to try.

Download the DragonflyTV Educator’s Guides to get kids started on their own inquiry investigations. The activities are developed with the National Science Teacher’s Association. They’re aligned with today’s science standards, and they’re ideal for the classroom or for after-school programs.
