November 25, 2019 2 min read

For the past few years, we have had a Cyber Monday sale, but this year we will not. Instead, we are encouraging you to opt for science fun with your family.

Our goal here at Elemental Science is to help you share science with your kiddos.

So rather than creating scarcity pricing and exclusive bundles for a short weekend, we have decided to provide you with the best pricing we can year-round. We are also offering our Christmas Science book and kit for more than just one week, so you won't miss out on the holiday science fun! 

With all that in mind, this Black Friday through Cyber Monday, we are offering these 4 FREE science activities you can do as a family - let's dig in!

4 Interesting ways you can Opt-4-Science-Fun from Black Friday through Cyber Monday

You can set aside one day to do several experiments or do a few each day throughout the weekend!
