STEM Chat 10/20/21 Halloween Potion-Making for Kids, Trick or Treat at Home + More #STEM #STEMKids #Education
Our latest episode for STEM Chat is celebrating Halloween!
We make a Harry Potter potion inspired by our favorite character, Luna Lovegood called “Luna’s Extraordinary Elixir.” It’s a fizzy lemonade experiment and a great chemistry project that kids can make and drink. Diana also shows you a great Trick or Treat at home project and we share with you our Favorite Things from the past few months.
There are 2 Printables that go along with the potion project: the recipe and the bottle labels PDF so kids can make themselves a potion station like we have picture below and get their bottles and cups in the magical spirit. These Printables will be available in our email newsletter coming out this Friday. You can sign up for the newsletter at: www.stemchatclub.com.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
