Research Notebook
If you’re in love with science, perhaps you are hoping to become a pharmacist one day. If so, great! Keep in mind, however, it typically takes eight years of college education to earn a Pharm.D. and become a pharmacist. You can still be in love with science and not want to be a pharmacist, though. Science can be fun for anyone at any age in any kind of environment. Whether you’re helping your toddler learn about science at home or you’re working on experiments on your own, there are plenty of fun-filled activities you can engage in. Throughout all your research, findings, and experimentations, it’s best to keep track of everything you do with quality scientific lab notebooks. Even if you’re doing two completely different experiments months or even years apart, you still might have to refer back to old notes you took inside research notebooks. So don’t just write everything down inside your scientific lab notebooks, but keep them well organized throughout your educational and scientific career. Here are some awesome and fun-filled scientific experiments that you can start working on right away:  
    • Instantly freeze water — When purified water is chilled to just below freezing point, placing an ice cube inside is all it takes for all the surrounding water to freeze. With this instant ice, you’ll be able to bend and shape the water in all kinds of cool ways.
    • Gooey Ooblek dance party — Don’t let anyone tell you that science isn’t fun… or adorable. Oobleck, named after Dr. Suess, is a non-Newtonian fluid, meaning it can be both a solid and a liquid at the same time. Place a pot of this substance over a speaker and the vibrations will cause a gooey dance party!
    • Make objects disappear — You can turn glass invisible by using vegetable oil and pyrex glass. This is a great party trick and can be a fun way to bond with your science-loving children.
