Stay connected with science through Franklin @ Home, our collection of digital science resources to feed your curiosity. Explore the world with DIY hands-on activities, engaging videos, and deeper dives—because science never stops. And to get your daily dose of wonder, follow The Franklin Institute on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and join our email list.

Our online activities include:

  • Force and Motion: all around us, things are moving—objects, sounds, air, and water. Investigate how physical forces interact to create these movements and how we can design things to move the way we want them to.
  • Space: physicist William Bragg once said, “Light brings us the news of the universe.” How does light work? What does it tell us about space? How do we explore our solar system—and beyond—from here on Earth?
  • Chemistry: atoms and molecules are the basic building blocks that make up all the “stuff” in our world. How can we mix these building blocks to make new stuff? Or pull them apart to figure out how stuff works?
  • Human Body: explore the science of you! How do different parts of your body work? How does your brain figure out what’s going on around you? How can you keep your body healthy?
  • Earth Science: Earth is our home. It’s also a place that’s always changing. Investigate the science of plants, water, wind, and weather—the systems that make our planet a special place to live.
  • Engineering: design, build, test, and try again. Engineering is a way of thinking to help us solve problems. Tackle these building challenges to put your engineering mind to work!
  • Interactive Science: explore the world with DIY hands-on activities, engaging science videos, and science experiments for kids at home!
  • Live Scientist Events: conversations include COVID-19 updates, environmental issues, space exploration, and design and engineering. There is always a Q&A, so bring your questions!
  • The Current: explore The Franklin Institute’s blog!
