Extension in Science

I'm teaching sixth grade science for the first time this year. I have the typical range of kids but I have one who is heads and shoulders above the others in terms of her insight into science and her enthusiasm for it. She often completes work quickly and accurately. I'd love to encourage her passion and interest but our rooms aren't really set up for hands-on activities. I'm hesitant to set up separate hands-on activities for her because I'm worried about managing it, the class given it's my first year in middle school and this class has a handful of strong personalities, and because of the expense of getting the materials.
Any suggestions?

Could you have her teach a lesson on a science theme? We use to do this at the end of the year for those students interested.

Aren't there science boxes that include all the materials needed to perform an activity. I am thinking Delta....

Can you find any virtual labs for the student to do on the computer?

I would give her some simple STEM activities to do. You want her to extend her interest but not feel like she is made to do extra work.

Also from time to time I receive packets with a class set of hand-outs... Connections....I think it is called and it is a little magazine. Or surely you get in the mail those advertisements from National Geographic or other science stuff.

I created a googleclassroom for my kids.

Part is for tutoring and the other part is extension. I put videos, games that the school allows, and interactives on this gc by standard.
