Parents struggle with kids’ science homework.

Parents are failing to keep up with their children’s scientific knowledge, a survey suggests.

Researchers for the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair interviewed 2,000 parents of children aged between five and 16.

Two-thirds of parents said they struggled with their children’s science queries and a quarter felt frustrated.

Some of the questions that parents struggled with include:

Why is the moon sometimes out in the day?

Why is the sky blue?

How much does the earth weigh?
