Arm & Hammer's Cool STEM Experiment for Kids Is a Guaranteed Hit

This is a great project for a rainy day!

It's increasingly important to get students excited about science and math classes these days, as those courses in school become the foundation to future careers in computer science, technology, and other key fields. Even with all the great interactive programs and apps from smart phones and laptops, it's not as easy an access point. The good news is some activities parents remember from their childhood still hold up - especially as a good rainy-day activity.

Arm and Hammer posted some experiments that can be done with simple household products. These are great ways to introduce children to basic scientific concepts like chemical reactions and simple physics formulas. On their TikTok account, @armandhammer, they show how to set up the tried-and-true baking soda and vinegar volcano. It's so easy to get going!

Great videos prompt personal reactions. This video does just that. TikTok user @chernandez 5697 says, "That is so cool when I was a kid taking a bath I use the put shampoo and water in empty bottles like it was a potion." 

It's great to see companies like Arm and Hammer promoting STEM activities for students and helping families build memorable experiences. It's not easy to get kids to do things that are good for them sometimes. Hopefully, these projects help engage students in STEM fields and create new areas of interest that can flourish over time.
