Key Takeaway->If you don't have the supplies - try to find a similar material or swap the experiment out for a different one before you scratch it and head outside to observe science in your own backyard.
One of the biggest struggles with doing experiments at home is having the right supplies on hand.

In this episode, we are going to chat about how you can rescue that science-learning opportunity.

1. Find something similar.
2. Swap it out for a different experiment.
3. Just head outside.
