Sergei Urban from The DadLab is here to talk about connecting with your kids through science. What started as a hobby doing experiments and projects with his own two kids turned into a full time gig where he encourages other parents to get invested in learning with their kids. He is also the author of a really cool book that shares some of his favorite experiments called The DadLab.
One of my favorite take aways from this conversation was – if you don’t know anything about science it shouldn’t stop you from doing science with your kids. I love that he encourages parents to learn WITH their kids.
Enjoy my conversation with Sergei!
