Science for Kids Overview
(scroll this section to read all)
You may ask 'What is Science?'. The best answer is that it logically explains how the world works and why it works the way it does. Chemistry, Physics and Biology (Life Sciences) are some of the classic sciences but there are plenty of others too such as math, psychology and economics. Math has its own section of the website.
Science is an important part of school because it teaches you how the world works! It explains a lot of things that you might be curious about. It can teach you to learn in a logical fashion and at the same time can be really fun if you do things 'hands on'!
Our links to games and activities plus videos will soon have you up and running in no time. Admittedly, science is a big subject, so we suggest learning bits at a time and keeping track of what you've learnt.
The best way to learn depends on your age. Children typically up to age 8 tend to learn more by being taught and by 'doing things' (e.g. playing games, activities and experimenting) whereas if you are older then some self study of various authoritative texts should be added as well.
Each kids science section of this website will have SPECIFIC links to that science topic but below are some generic links for information and for a quick browse around. It is advisable however, to work your way through the individual science topics.
