Science for Kids

This site is organized into ten main science and technology areas: Astronomy Biology, Chemistry, Computers, Environmental Science, Geology, Mathematics, Physics, Technology and Weather. Our goal is to select science sites that provide accurate scientific information presented in a way thats understandable and fun.

Astronomy and Space

  • The Universe, The Solar System, Space Exploration. Photographs from the Hubble Space telescope and NASA Web Pages To visit the Astronomy page click here

  • General Biology, Evolution, Genetics and Molecular Biology, Animal Species and dinosaurs!! To visit the Biology page click here


  • H2O, carbondioxide and the Periodic Table of Elements. A lethal combination after all!! To visit the Chemistry page click here


  • A bit of this and a byte of that. Supercomputers to your Home PC's, this page has a lot of links to cool sites and a Hacker's Jargon dictionary. To visit the Computer page click here

Environmental Sciences

  • Is there really a hole in the sky? What is the El Nino? Find out about the environment around you.. To visit the Environmental Sciences page click here


  • Earthquakes to Volcanoes, Antarctica to the Arctic, there is a lot to learn about Geology and Earth Sciences. To visit the Geology page click here

  Total Solar Eclipse
Total Solar Eclipse

  The total solar eclipse of February 26th, 1998. Pictures taken from Seroe Colorado, Aruba. This picture shows the full view of the corona. more  
Tyrannosaurus Rex

Tyrannosaurus rex is one of the biggest dinasaur meateaters. It ate other dinosaurs for lunch. It was taller than three men standing on each other's shoulders. Its teeth were 6 inches long and it could crush large bones when it ate. more
Nanobes - Image © CMM

Nanobes have cellular structures similar to fungi and spores but they can be 10 times smaller (20nm-1.0μm). They have hollow, membrane bound structures that are most likely composed of Carbon, Oxygen and Nitrogen. more

Cray 2

In 1985 Seymour Cray developed the Cray-2, which was even faster (1,200,000,000 calculations per second). more
Mandelbrot's fractal
Mandelbrot's Fractal

The Mandelbrot set (the black points) are the complex numbers C for which the sequence Z0=0; Zn = Zn-12 + C remains bounded. The surrounding points are colored to represent the different rates of divergence of the unbounded sequences. more
Particle Creation
Particle Creation

In physics the The Standard Model theorizes that all the known matter particles are composites of 6 quarks and 6 leptons, and they interact by exchanging force carrier particles. more

Buzz Aldrin walks on the Moon
A Space Walk

'Drifting right' I called, watching the shadow of the footpad probe straining to touch the surface. 'Contact light.' We settled silently onto the moon with perhaps only 20 seconds of fuel remaining. more

Typhoon from Space
Typhoon from Space

The winds of a hurricane are structured around a central "eye", which is an area that is free of clouds and relatively frid calm. Around this "eye" area, storm clouds wrap in a counter-clockwise motion. more
