Now the provider of lab materials, technologies, and services has launched Curiosity Labs at Home, providing parents with free, simple, interactive experiments to engage their young scientists.
Who knew? Ringing in the new year on January 1, 2020, brought similar feelings every new year brings: an opportunity to reset and look forward to the year ahead. I remember saying I felt like even-numbered years had always been better for me, and that I was glad to see 2019 closed out. Clearly, the universe had something else in store.
People want to rely on scientific evidence in countless different contexts. As one professor put it, “Science has ‘epistemic authority,’ meaning it is the best method humans have available to understand what is true about the world.” So science should be able to speak for itself. But people with a vested interest in undermining science are working behind the scenes to obscure it.
At MilliporeSigma, we are passionate about inspiring the next generation of scientists. We typically work to accomplish this through a variety of programs including SPARK, Curiosity Labs™ and the Curiosity Cube®, but as many families are home for a prolonged period of time, we wanted to help bring a little curiosity to them at home.
