I wrote about Beth Harris last week. She's the Raleigh mom of two and creator of Fort Kits for Kids. I know Go Ask Mom readers have been keeping her busy with holiday orders since that post!
In addition to making the Fort Kits, Harris also is a long-time science educator. I thought it would be fun for her to share a few easy experiments that families can do at home with things that you probably have around the house.
We'll start today with this one which requires only a potato and a plastic straw. Watch the video to see how it's done. It's a fun way to learn all about air pressure. Harris' website has more science activities.
