Super Sun Prints
(The Lawrence Discovery Store $19.99)
This is a great classic STEM activity developed by The Lawrence Hall of Science that's fun to do on a sunny day. The set comes with 15 8" x 12" sheets and 1 acrylic overlay. For me it's the process that's the most thrilling. You place objects (e.g. keys, a leaf) and place them on the photosensitive paper. Add the acrylic overlay and leave it in the sun for 1-5 minutes until the paper turns white. Now here's where the amazing part comes -- pick up the object which will now leave behind a blue impression on the object. You can then put the paper in water to set the design. 6 & up.
