The internet is a well of information waiting to be tapped into. Every day, people around the world are posting articles about all kinds of cool science stuff that we love reading about, because even mad scientists need to stay in the know! Here is a list of 5 of our favorite science blogs that we’re following, chock-full of great information.
The Steve Spangler Science Blog
Steve’s blog takes a kid-friendly, fun-focused approach to science, or “Play with a Purpose.” From color-changing milk and instant-freeze water to Mentos geysers and invisible secret messages, this blog is loaded with great information and fun experiments to try at home.
The Kid Should See This
TKSST is a blog all about the sensational; anything that captures the attention and the imagination are up for grabs. The content they show is “not made for kids, but is perfect for them,” and focuses on what they call “STEAM”, (science, technology, engineering, art, and math).
Science is Beauty
This blog combines science and art, using fascinating imagery to explain scientific concepts and sometimes just to marvel at its beauty. Warning: Some content on this site may not be appropriate for the workplace or your children’s eyes. Or your grandmother’s.
Minute Physics is a YouTube channel filled to the brim with interesting, informational videos. They answer such important questions as, why is our solar system flat? And, why isn’t the sky purple? And, what really happens when an unstoppable force hits an immovable object? The videos are not one minute each, as the name implies, but they are very short and very fun.
It’s Okay to be Smart
The idea behind It’s Okay to be Smart is that, well… it’s okay to be smart. Part blog, part YouTube channel, IOTBS explores science in its many forms and teaches that science is “more than facts. It’s a creative process, it’s an instant injection of wonderment, it’s the excitement we feel at the edge of knowledge.”
