Parents without scientific degrees, however, will normally draw a blank stare at the thought of setting up and operating a "family lab" at home.
Fretting is unnecessary, however. By setting aside a dedicated science space in the home (even just a small table and bookcase in the family room), and using a few good books as guides, the task needn't be unduly burdensome.
To get things going, below are listed some great activity books for young scientists and their parents:
The Science Explorer
The Curious Kid's Science Book
Big Science for Little People
The 101 Coolest Simple Science Experiments
The Big Book of Makerspace Projects
Tinkerlab: A Hands-On Guide for Little Inventors
Electronics for Kids: Play with Simple Circuits and Experiment with Electricity!
