BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Summer break is an exciting time for kids to get a break from school but it can also be hard for parents to come up with creative ways to keep their kids entertained at home.

Every Monday, meteorologist and anchor Elaina Rusk will be helping share ideas for STEM experiments you can do at home — using things you have around the house.

This week, Joaquin Castillo, a mathematics program specialist with the Kern County Superintendent of Schools, joined her on set.
