Galaxy in a Jar STEM Craft Idea For Kids
We recently took part in a STEM Star Wars campaign with EDF Energy to promote the importance of STEM subjects for girls. Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths are really important subjects and there are more and more STEM based jobs in the UK that need to be filled in the future. I think it’s great to get both girls and boys interested in science and this fun Galaxy in a Jar project is a great way to do this.

Supplies For This Stem Activity
- Cotton Balls
- Mason Jar
- Acrylic Paint (4 different colours)
- Silver Glitter
- 4 disposable cups
- Silver Paper
How To Make This Galaxy Jar Project
Slowly pour the first paint colour over the cotton balls until they soak up the water.
If you accidentally add to much water, then just add a few more cotton pieces to soak it up.
Repeat step 2 until you have all your layers. Place lid on jar.
Cut 2 stars out of the silver paper and attach to the piece of string.
You now have a jar from out of this world!
