How Things Work was Designed to Eliminate the Mystery.
There’s a whole world of everyday stuff out there that begs the question, “How does that work”? Or, “Why does that work” or “What caused that to happen?
On How Things Work, teachers, students or just interested folks can find resources, “how to do” projects, science fair topics and other valuable information about the subject of their choice.
From, “Is dog saliva really antiseptic?” to, “Does getting older affect your memory?” we have the answer to a lot of questions– or we help you to find it yourself.
Looking for Something Interesting to Do This Summer?
We’ve got you covered. How Things Work is sponsoring a science project contest. Have a little fun and learn a little something new with How Things Work.
1. Pick a project from our website
2. Do that project (is ok if parents or friends help you with it)
3. Take videos or progress photos of all the major steps along the way
4. Write up your project as if you had to do it for a school assignment. Tell us your project, your theory (what you expected to see), your actual observations and … your conclusions.
Thanks so much for the great resource for both teachers and students.
Many of my teaching friends have used the site to help them to get great ideas for younger students who needed something age appropriate for a science fair.
