Were you the type of kid that would get in trouble because you were always blowing something up or mixing things together that shouldn’t be mixed? Do you now have a boring 9 to 5 job that makes you yearn for those free days in your childhood when all things were possible? If you answered yes to those questions, then this post is for you. I will show you six cool web sites that you can use to unleash the mad scientist within and try fun science experiments at home.

Edible/Inedible Experiments Archive

science experiments

This list of fun and very simple experiments should quickly bring back fond memories from your childhood. The experminents involve simple items that you can find around your house and they should not take too long to setup. My personal favoriites are the Baking Soda Volcano and Soda Geyser.

Evil Mad Scientist

websites for science

This web sites motto is, “Making the World a Better Place, One Evil Mad Scientist at a Time”, and each week they feature a new do it yourself project. These projects are a bit more advanced then the ones from the previous web site and you may have to go out and purchase some things to create your own project, but the ideas are way cool. Since I am a robot nut, I was partial to the Bristlebot, which was a tiny vibrating robot made from the head of a toothbrush.

Mad Scientist Party


Why not get some of your friends together and host a mad scientist party? This site will tell you all you need to know about hosting such a party, including invitations, games, and even an evil eye cake.

PBS Zoom Science

The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) hosts a very popular kids show called Zoom science. Not only does the associated web site include fun experiments seen on the show, but you can even send in the results from your own wacky science experiment and they may feature it on the show.

Steve Spangler Science Experiments

Steve Spangler performs science experiments for a weekly local television show, but his web site features some really fun and simple science experiments you can do at home. Steve tries really hard to make science fun.
