Online Science Experiments


Royal, Ken, Technology & Learning


If you believe that all other subjects generate out of a central spoke called science, then these experiment, project, and activity sites are for you. Activities include objectives, illustrations, materials, procedures, and additional links--there are even a few here to help with science fairs. All of these sites have one thing in common, though, and that is safety. Before experimenting, remember safety first.

* Fun Science Gallery (www.funsci.com/texts/ index_eh.htm) Projects include instructions for making telescopes, microscopes, batteries, sidereal indicators, and several other instruments. Some of these are for high school level students, but elementary level projects are available at the Science Experiments for Environmental Education and Biology link (at the bottom of the page).

* Memory Experiments (faculty.washington.edu/ chudler/chmemory.html) This site has some great experiments and games to test your memory. There are some memory tricks and techniques to help you remember too. The Face Memory Test includes grade levels for the activities.

* Science Toys You Can Make with Your Kids (www. scitoys.com/cgi-bin/shop.cgi/page=contents.html) The creations here are geared to the high school level or to those working in a guided science club experience.

Some, like the solar hot dog cooker, can be done with lower grade levels. Each of the experiments has diagrams and photos accompanying the procedures.

* Reeko's Mad Scientist Lab Experiments (www.spartech software.com/reeko/MoreExperimentsSortCategory. htm) Categories are divided into sections like chemistry, pressure, motion, and energy. The skill levels are broken into easy, intermediate, and advanced. The experiments give material needed, procedures, and background information. …
