Science experiments are fun and educational and there are many books filled with various experiments that you can do at home. And while the books and pictures are great, a lot more can be learned by watching the experiments being conducted. Because science is so visual, watching a video tutorial of an experiment being conducted is often much more helpful that just reading about the experiment.
Because of that, I put together a list of the best YouTube Channels that walk you through science experiments so you can follow along at home.
Best YouTube Channels with Science Experiments for Kids
Hoopla Kids Lab
This is a great channel that has been around for more than 2 year and contains 100+ experiment videos. The videos on the individual experiment are narrated making it easy to follow along to the instruction while doing the experiment at home. While the videos showing multiple experiments are great for watching and observing what happens.
All of Steve Spangler’s YouTube channels are worth watching, but this is our favorite. The videos are short, catchy, educational and there are 500+ to choose from. The instructions are written on the screen and they aren’t narrated, so children who are able to read along will get the most benefit from watching them.
Doctor Mad Science
This channel shares simple science experiments, hosted by an 13 year old autistic boy named Jordan. My kids have fun watching experiments that are being conducted and explained by another child.
Cool Science Experiments Headquarters
I’d like to think I’ve saved the best for last! You know I couldn’t create a list of the best Science YouTube Channels without mentioning Cool Science Experiment Headquarters. On the channel you will find simple experiments that you can do at home. You’ll see my kids and I conducting the experiment and the videos are narrated so you can easily follow along at home. I’d love for you to subscribe so you can join in the fun too!
