"We've seen a big demand for hands-on science experiments from parents who are now homeschooling their children since schools have closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, we're sending out free science experiments weekly to our email list. These experiments can also be accessed on our website blog. We're also donating 10% of profits from all website sales to the Oregon Food Bank to support their efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic." - Kelly McCollum
