These activities engage groups of kids and parents in hands-on science, experiments, discussions, and interactions with scientists that reveal science in daily life. Though designed for big group science events, these can be adapted for small groups.

Family Science facilitates cooperative, hands-on activities and discussions that give students a chance to interact with science professionals, conduct experiments, and examine the science in daily life. Activities encourage students to 'tinker' and explore, but some don't have clear themes, and the science behind them isn't always well explained. Reviewers disagree whether this curriculum is appropriate for afterschool programs, or only for larger-scale science events.
