Weather Science – Challenge and Discover

Inspiration Laboratories and I are very excited to bring you our latest bi-monthly challenge, and this month it’s all about WEATHER SCIENCE. We’re sharing some of our favourite ideas and would love you to either give them a go or share your own activities and experiments.

You could make a simple barometer and learn about Air Pressure.

How about making a simple rain gauge? Don’t forget to record the results and empty it every day.

Rain Gauge

If you want to get crafty how about making a pinwheel like this one from Red Ted Art? Does it spin faster on more windy days? Could you make a kite as well?

Learn about flooding in this great guest post from Domestic Goddesque.

Inspiration Laboratories makes a great hurricane.


Learn about the water cycle with this fun mini water cycle.

Find out how water evaporates in this easy activity.


  Or, how about making a pinecone weather station.


Don’t forget to check out the ideas over at Inspiration Laboratories too. We’re making a slight change to Challenge and Discover this month, instead of asking you to add your post to the linky, we’d love you to share your post on:

  • Science for Kids G+ page – tagging Science Sparks and Inspiration Laboratories

We can’t wait to see your ideas, and do share old and new posts.


By sharing, you are giving us permission to grab one picture and feature your projects on our blogs and social media sites. We’d love for you to grab a button and add it to your post.
