Ignite your child’s love for Science: 5 fascinating websites for Primary students

Be it the nature of light, the human anatomy, or the deep and unfathomable mystery of outer space, the internet is brimming with mindblowing facts waiting to ignite a sense of wonder and leave your child going “woooaaah!”

So, we went ahead and handpicked 5 of the best websites out there that would get your Primary school child to fall deeper in love with science.

After all, besides burying their noses in assessment books all day, what better way to prepare your child for PSLE than to get them curious about the world we live in through fun and games?

Website #1 How Stuff Works

No matter how many candles are there on our birthday cakes, we never outgrow our need to ask “why”. Why is the sky blue? Why are sharks mammals? And why do nuclear reactors work the way they do? If you’re a parent of little Sherlock Holmes who love to crack the world open and examine everything under a microscope, How Stuff Works is a treasure trove of articles brimming with mind-boggling facts that would keep them fascinated for days.

From topics such as “How electricity works” to ”The 5 loudest animals on earth”, the website is divided into various sections based on categories and field of study - making it easy for young children to find what they are looking for.

Website #2 National Geographic Kids

Discovery Channel. Animal Planet. National Geographic.

As young children, nothing came close to the Big Three when it comes to answering life’s big questions. From print to giant TV screens to computers that fit nicely in our back pockets, National Geographic Kids continues to fan the flames of curiosity in Primary and Secondary students with news, articles, games, and videos that take them right into the heart of the animal kingdom, and beyond.

However, the key feature of the site is no doubt the “Brain Boosters” section. Children get to put their knowledge to the test with a wide range of fun quizzes and exciting activities that make learning Science fun and engaging.

Website #3 Bill Nye, the Science Guy

Best known for his science television show, Bill Nye the Science Guy is one of the most beloved scientists who have graced the silver screen. Behind the colourful bowties and a chirpy demeanour, Bill has a way of explaining paper-dry theories that keeps our eyes glued firmly to the screen. Moving from TV to computer screens, Bill Nye The Science Guy continues to tickle the minds of young thinkers of the future with a series of explainer videos, engaging demonstrations, and fascinating home experiments that seem like magic - almost.

But as Bill likes to say: “It’s not magic. It’s science.”
