As Covid-19 cases rise, and as it becomes critical to quarantine, the ability to provide hands-on learning for children has never been more important. However, hands-on learning does not have to be a grind or bore one to tears. Whether in a STEM program, school or learning at home, kids can explore a fun and educational kit created by My First Lab, like the Whodunnit Detective Spy Scope.

Science for kids

Dive into the world of forensic science, with five different cases that allow children to sleuth their way to the truth.
