Homeschool Science Experiment: On a clear night when Jupiter is up, you’ll be able to view the four moons of Jupiter (Europa, Ganymede, Io, and Callisto) and the largest moon of Saturn (Titan) with only a pair of binoculars. The question is, which moon is which? This lab will let you in on the secret to figuring it out.

    Make sure you wear gloves when doing this science experiment! If you're a science teacher in a classroom with lots of students, you can hand out plastic baggies to cover their hands.

Homeschool Science Experiment: Cold Light. What three colors do you need to make up any color in the universe? (You should be thinking: red, yellow, and blue.) Here's a trick question - can you make the color "yellow" with only red, green, and blue as your color palette? If you're a scientist, it's not a problem. But if you're an artist, you're in trouble already.

    I've had homeschool parents argue with me that this science experiment isn't possible... and then they try it for themselves.

    A group of homeschool students made this science activity into an orchestra one time - it was amazing to hear them play songs when it really sounded more like screeching.

Homeschool Science Experiment: Using a few simple tests you can do right at home, you'll be able to tell if you've got a meteorite or not! Meteors are the smallest members of our solar system, ranging from pebble size to smaller than a grain of sand and usually weighing less than 2 grams. Kids will learn how to collect tiny meteorites very easily. They will also be able to tell a meteorite from an Earth rock.

    The big rock in this video is a real meteorite that I use when I teach kids science. They always guess that it's an Earth rock... but it isn't!

Homeschool Science Experiment: Spectrometers are used in chemistry and astronomy to measure light. In astronomy, we can find out about distant stars without ever traveling to them, because we can split the incoming light from the stars into their colors (or energies) and “read” what they are made up of (what gases they are burning) and thus determine their what they are made of.

Jupiter's Moons - This montage shows the best views of Jupiter's four large and diverse "Galilean" satellites as seen by the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) on the New Horizons spacecraft during its flyby of Jupiter in late February 2007. The four moons are, from left to right: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto. The images have been scaled to represent the true relative sizes of the four moons and are arranged in their order from Jupiter.

New Horizons took this montage of images of Jupiter's volcanic moon Io, glowing in the dark of Jupiter's shadow, as the Pluto-bound spacecraft sped through the Jupiter system on Feb. 27, 2007.
