How Stuff WorksHow Stuff Works covers all sorts of interesting topics, but the science section includes space, earth science, life science and even paranormal science. Explore tornadoes, hair coloring, UFOs, radar and lunar landings. The site is geared more towards older audiences - the explanations may be too complex for younger kids - but it is a great resource for families. However, since it isn't intended for the youngest family members, parental guidance is definitely suggested on this one.
Try ScienceTry Science is a great first stop on your science journey. There are dozens of experiments in areas such as chemistry, biology, math and engineering, many of which can be done on and offline. You can take a virtual field trip to another museum or even view some animals via live webcam. Adults will appreciate the resources for parents and teachers, too.
