Making Science Fun at Home

Spangler started his career as a science teacher in Colorado where he quickly saw the need for teaching parents how to make science fun at home.
“It’s our job as science teachers to spark a child’s curiosity and challenge their inquisitive nature,” said Spangler who taught in the public schools for thirteen years. “The role that parents play in nurturing that curiosity and sense of wonder is crucial to the success of the STEM movement all across the country.”
Outside of the classroom, Spangler found his niche as a science communicator on television in the 1990s and was quick to jump on the YouTube bandwagon during its initial launch in 2005. That’s why Spangler is probably best known internationally for teaching millions of people how to turn a bottle of soda and a roll of Mentos into an erupting geyser of fun.
