Looking for educational activities to keep the kids occupied? We've searched the web and found some fun citizen science projects and activities that we've adapted so you and your family can do them in your current location, no matter where you live. You don't need any special equipment for these activities and they can be easily adapted to all ages. Plus, we have some awesome prizes up for grabs.
Parental supervision is recommended and although we ask you to share your location, please do not share your address. Suburb or City and Country are all you need to post (especially on social media). Winners will be selected based on imagination, creativity, ability to follow instructions and scientific findings. Hint: We are interested in how you interpret your findings - there is no such thing as a wrong answer here.
Important Note: We are unable to post prizes immediately, due to Covid19-Level 4 isolation in New Zealand. We will endeavor to ship prizes as soon as it is safe to do so.
