Science Kitchen logo


The UW Department of Physics and Astronomy and Wyoming NASA Space Grant have launched the Science Kitchen! In the Science Kitchen K-12 students and teachers can build, create, and explore scientific ideas through interactive experiments and group work.  The Science Kitchen is a center for introducing students to physical sciences through hands-on exploration and problem solving. (Funded by the Ellbogen Foundation)

Bring some Spooky Science to your school!

Friday, November 1st 

The Science Kitchen has a series of ‘spooky’ science demos and activities to show your students the fun side of science!  Bring our group of volunteers to your school or classroom for a 20-40 minute set of interactive STEM activities and demos.    Activities are designed for elementary (K-5) students, however we can expand these activities to be suitable for pre-K, middle school, or high school students.

If you are interested in signing up your school/classroom, please take the survey here:

Once we receive your survey, we will contact you within 2 business days to discuss details. Please note that filling out the survey does not guarantee that the Science Kitchen will be able to come to your school for the Spooky Science event.  Spaces are limited and depend on our volunteer’s availability.  However, we are planning to work with as many classrooms as we can!
