COVID-19 Experiments for Children

A community project by Ednovation
to support parents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

How to keep your child safe from COVID-19

The COVID-19 outbreak is expected to continue for a year or longer.

It is impossible for parents to keep their children at home for such a long time. Hence, it is paramount to inculcate in them good hygiene habits to keep them safe.

Telling young children not to touch their face or to wash hands frequently may not change their behaviour.

For young children to understand and internalise the “why” behind these instructions, there is no better way than for them to do experiments and observe the effects.

As a pioneer in pre-school curriculum development in Singapore, we would like to share these fun and easy-to-do experiments that parents can carry out at home with their children to help them understand the “why”.

Doing these experiments will also be an opportunity for children to learn life science, critical thinking skills, empathy and more.

Let’s work together to keep our loved ones safe!
