Research shows science is important to a child's success at school and beyond, and that early engagement is crucial. So TVOParents has joined forces with Let's Talk Science, a national charitable organization that helps support kids' learning through science, technology, engineering and math, to create a series of fun, fast experiments families can do together at home. We call the series "Five Minute Science" because these experiments can be done in about five minutes, give or take a few!

Enjoy doing these experiments with your child, and remember to bookmark this page as we'll continue to add new "five minute science" experiments.
