At-home activities for families and friends


As we all adjust to new health recommendations and wellness practices we may be finding ourselves at home much more than ever before. Here at the IGB we want to connect with communities both locally in Urbana-Champaign and across the globe. We will be posting fun and educational activities or suggestions to help enjoy this time together and to engage with each other, and to provide some opportunities to learn something new, experiment with a fresh idea, or just be curious.

Final Daily Activity: Notable Scientists Puzzle!

(Missed yesterday's activity? Check out our archive)

We have had a wonderful time spending the days with all of you doing couchreach together. Before we break for summer we have one last activity for everyone to enjoy, and it's a zebra puzzle featuring some of your soon-to-be-favorite notable scientists. Put your logic caps on and use the clues to fill in the matrix! Download a copy of the Notable Scientists Puzzle here, and if you need to check your work the answer key can be downloaded here. 

From all of us at IGB have a great summer and stay safe and healthy! We'll still post fun activities from time to time too, so check back if you're looking for some science!
