Curiosity Labs™ at Home

Curiosity Labs® at Home

We are passionate about inspiring the next generation of scientists. We typically work to accomplish this through a variety of programs including SPARK, Curiosity Labs™ and the Curiosity Cube®, but as many families are home for a prolonged period of time, we wanted to help bring a little curiosity to you at home.

We’ve created a number of easy and educational science experiments that can be completed at home with materials typically found around the house.

New Curiosity Labs™ at Home experiment videos are on their way – stay tuned
