Glasgow Science Centre bring a bit of science into your home every day to help keep everyone inspired in these challenging times.

The team have been overwhelmed by the response to #GSCAtHome on social media and we’re really excited to start what we hope will grow into a really exciting project for us here over the coming days and weeks.

Join them on their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Videos will also be shared through our YouTube channel.

Ask us questions and let us know what you'd like to see, using the hashtag #GSCAtHome.

Get some paper, pens (crayons or paint) and your imaginations ready! Combine it with some science know-how and join our Planetarium team (Natalie and Veronica) to design a planet of your very own! Ideal for all the family to try, with over 3s likely to find it awesome fun!
The Mould Effect

A demonstration and explanation of a scientific phenomenon known as the Mould effect. If you're a skateboarder, you've got an advantage to already understanding some of the principles of the forces involved in this mesmerising phenomenon. Visually fun for all, the science bit is most likely to appeal to over 7s.
Make a Nebula In A Jar

No, it's not an April Fools' - you can pull the stars down from the sky and make your own nebula in a jar! A wonderful, and crafty, 'make-it-at-home' to try inspired by the birthplaces of stars - nebulae. To make your own, with some adult supervision, you'll need: small glass vial (or similar), cotton wool, coloured water (made with food colouring), and some glitter. Ideal for ages 7 and over, younger children will need a bit more help form an adult.
