Teachers and researchers came together to create the CoBuild At Home website during the Covid-19 pandemic with the goal of encouraging children and their caregivers to use common household items to build and create. You can find multiple project ideas on the site that range from extracting DNA from food to making art from sneezes. Most of the projects have short challenge videos, and many include downloadable resources.
In addition to the challenges offered on the CoBuild website, the Science Friday podcast is collaborating with CoBuild at Home to provide a CoBuild Camp from July 24th, 2020 – July 31st, 2020. This free camp is designed for children in 1st-6th grades, and will include a one hour Zoom each day of the camp. Visit the link for more details, and to fill out an interest form. Be sure to fill out the interest form soon, as spots for this great opportunity may fill up!
