The Dad Lab


Having fun with kids while exploring the magic of science and art is Sergei Urban's passion at The Dad Lab. 

Sergei shows simple ways to help children learn and grow doing projects at home using everyday objects. Best of all, you don't need a science background to teach your children and find a common passion for discovery.

Warning: watching Sergei with his kids is totally addictive and absolutely uplifting!

I spend every moment I can making quirky science experiments and creative art projects with my boys. I want to be both their friend and their guide. Being a parent is as much as challenge as it is an adventure."

- Sergei Urban
