Forty fun, foolproof, and fascinating science experiments that can be conducted in a glass canning jar, from water fireworks and soda stalactites to a caterpillar hatchery, rubber eggs, a balloon barometer, and much more.

The same qualities that make canning jars great for pickling - heatproof, see-through, and durable - also makes them perfect kitchen laboratories for junior scientists. Fascinated by the mysteries of experimentation and the Aha! moments of scientific discovery, kids will love making baking soda stalactites, water prisms, balloon barometers, and more. The 40 interactive projects are grouped by fields of science, from the Magic of Chemistry and Earth Science for Earthlings to Botany Basics and Let’s Get Physic(al). An illustrated diagram explains the science behind each project, which budding scientists can put to the test in real-time.

  • 40 intriguing hands-on projects encourage creative experimentation and substantive learning about chemistry, botany, biology, physics, food, and more.
  • Plays on the versatility of the popular mason jar. Using ordinary household items, these "kitchen science" projects are accessible and easy for kids to do on their own, make great school science fair projects, and are fun for unplugged family activity time.
  • Perfect projects for STEM education. Educators everywhere are embracing an interdisciplinary approach to learning science, technology, engineering, and math.
