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

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 child to fall deeper in love with science. 

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 loves 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 fields 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.'

Website #4 NASA Kid’s Club

One of our personal favourites, the NASA Kid’s Club is home to all things space, astronauts, rockets, and more. Get your child inspired with fun facts about real-life astronauts currently in space. For something both of you can do together, simply browse through the long list of puzzles, games, and colouring activities for one that catches your eye. One of the highlights of the website is the 'Rocket Builder' section where children are free to design and build their very own rockets.

From learning about NASA’s history to immersing themselves in hours of interactive games where your child can catch a glimpse of the Milky Way Galaxy, the NASA Kid’s Club might just be the spark that ignites your child’s astronaut dream. Fingers crossed.

Website #5 Science at Home

One of the nation’s most beloved family outing spots, Science Centre Singapore is riding the digital wave on the back of its latest initiative that seeks to inspire young minds in the name of science. Science At Home is an amazing website filled with mind-bending experiments, exciting games, informative articles, and educational videos that are bound to pique the interest of Primary school students.

One of the main draws of the initiative includes the 'I am a Young Scientist' badge awarded to students who manage to complete a series of tasks and activities worth 15 points. For the ambitious, fret not. There are over 20 badges across various STEM categories waiting to be earned.

On top of shiny badges that bestow bragging rights among their peers, Science at Home is a great tool for getting your child to see the world with an inquisitive eye.
