Develop critical thinking, logic, and creativity in your children with a Jarring Science Club membership!
Science is not just a subject. It is a way of thinking. A scientist tries, fails, and tries again.
Science does NOT provide all the answers.
Science teaches us to be skeptical of what we know today so that our scientific “conclusions” can be modified or changed as we make new discoveries.
My name is Brenda MacArthur, and I've taught over 100,000 teachers, organizations, and caregivers how to help children gain an interest in science and develop the vital skills they need to become scientists, explorers, and adults who want to make the world a better place.
REAL caregivers and teachers. Harnessing their child's natural curiosity.
Leading future scientists and innovators.
You CAN harness your child's creativity and TRANSFORM their feelings about science, technology, engineering, and math with one simple click...
But you don't have to take my word for it. Watch the inspiring stories of former Jarring Science Club members!
Meet Joanie. Her daughter is persuing a STEM degree thanks to hands-on science.
Jodie's daughter grew from hands-on science experiments to STEAM career.
Even a preschooler can understand the essentials of science and STEM.
Meet Sze. Her 4-year-old daughter perfectly explains how emulsions work.
"Science feels like home," is how Joslyn explains why she loves STEM subjects so much.
Meet Joslyn. Hands-on science in elementary helped her consider the science classroom a second home.
Science, technology, engineering, and math are not just a collection of facts.
A scientist must:
Observe what's going on
Predict what could happen
Test predictions in a controlled environment
Make sense of the outcome and record data
Science-fiction writer Isaac Asimov called science "a way of thinking" and that's what we believe in the Jarring Science Club.
We don't believe that science is learned through a textbook.
We believe kids should explore their world hands on.
We believe kids should be free to discover their own answers.
We believe that STEM activities can facilitate these discoveries for our kids.
The Jarring Science Club is less about science "facts" and more about teaching kids how to ask questions, try things, fail, and try again.
Children’s experiences help them form their ideas, but these ideas don't always align with scientific "facts." In the Jarring Science Club, we believe kids should be free to explore these "wrong" ideas without feeling stupid, judged, or shamed by low grades.
When a child looks at the world in a new way, through questions and discoveries, they realize they can make a difference.
Something special happens when our children define themselves as scientists, inventors, and creators.
Suddenly, they embrace "difficult" concepts like with determination, logic, critical thinking, and creativity. This mindset shift is both long-lasting and life changing.
The STEAMsational Story
It all started in 2013 when my daughter was in first grade.
At the time, I was just a homeschooling mom, trying to find accurate and engaging science curriculum for my ADHD daughter. She was OBSESSED with science, but I struggled to teach her because I thought I *hated* science.
I didn't want my daughter's love of science to be squashed like mine was, so I went on the hunt for the perfect science curriculum that answered her science questions, developed critical thinking skills, and provided hands-on activities.
But, what I was looking for wasn't out there. I saw a glaring problem between the traditional education system and what companies say they want from the people they hire.
In school, kids are praised for fitting in, checking the right boxes, and memorizing the right answers. Individual expression is discouraged, because schools are funded based on the standardized test scores of their students.
But once kids graduate from college, employers are desperate for innovators, rule-breakers, and creative thinkers.
No matter what career you go into, problem solving, logic, critical thinking, and creativity are highly prized skills.
I didn't find what I was looking for, so I created it myself. My daughters and their Girl Scout troops were the first children to try out the Jarring Science Club lessons!
The Jarring Science Club projects are designed for kids age 5-14 and in grades K-8th.
What sort of experiments are included?
We include science demonstrations to illustrate specific scientific concepts, open-ended science exploration to boost critical thinking, NGSS-aligned lesson plans, and support for STEM teachers and caregivers.
