About Me

Hello Everyone,

I’m Nick and I would like to welcome you to my small slice of the internet at Best Science Experiments For Kids.

My mission is to showcase the wonderful world of Science Experiments and to demonstrate how children can get hands-on from an early age.

Children Benefit In a Number of ways

Hands-on experiments can assist the development of children.

  • Practical strategy for the development of motor skills
  • Enhanced communication techniques
  • Promoting a deeper learning experience

How Science Became Part Of My Life

I am not a scientist but I have always had a keen interest in science, especially those experiments that leave you open-mouthed and wondering if you’ve just witnessed the impossible.

As a youngster, I was always playing with science-related gadgets.

  • Telescope
  • Microscope
  • Crystal making kit
  • Chemistry set
  • 100 in 1 electronic circuit kit

…or actually, anything else I could lay my hands on.

Special Memories

Christmas time was my favorite time of the year!

Not surprising really…. I hear you say!

For me, it wasn’t just about hoping the latest and greatest science gadget would tumble down the chimney.

Growing up in the UK, Christmas was also the time to watch The Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in London. They were televised over the holidays and have been every year since 1825.

The lectures were aimed at young people and even better than that,  children from the live audience were encouraged to participate in the bewildering and magical science experiments. It was amazing to watch normal kids interacting with famous scientists and being part of those wonderful experiments.

The Importance of Helping

As an IT Service Professional, my day job is dedicated to helping customers, bringing viable solutions to the table in order to resolve their issues.

Helping businesses and people on a daily basis is what really drives me to succeed.

As a father of young children, I also want to ensure that they grow with strong values by helping others and treating people with respect.

Science has helped enormously to improved the quality of life for millions of people.

Allowing children to interact and be part of “hands-on” Science gives them the opportunity to ask questions, build their confidence in communication, promote learning and drive their thirst for knowledge.

Why Build A Website?

When I started my research for Best Science Experiments for Kids, I found that information on the internet was not readily available unless you were already part of an educational institution.

For that reason, I wanted to create a resource to encourage parents and their children to get involved.

Building an internet site has always been a dream of mine!

Sharing My Passion

With a passion for Science Experiments and a desire to share that passion, I decided to build a website that would bring my dream and my passion together.

By sharing Science Experiment information, reviews and news, I want to help parents and children to understand and enjoy the benefits of Science Experiments For Kids.

Science should be fun for everyone!

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,

Nick

  • This is great information for kids! I have a 5 year old grandson. I’ll be sure to send your site over to my daughter to share it with him. Keep up the good work! 🙂

    • Thank you for the comment Tammy and taking the time to read my article.
      Please come back to find more experiments that I’m sure your grandson will enjoy!

  • Hi Nick – Like Tammy I think your site has a lot to offer. As a parent I’d be happy to channel my kids tendency to destroy things into their learning something from the experience.

    If you can identify and capture that early enthusiasm then you can direct them in a positive way.

    I like your site, clean and clear.

    • Hi Mike – Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read about Best Science Experiments For Kids.
      I think you hit the nail on the head and really understood the concept behind the site.

      Engaging children and parents as early as possible with hands-on Science can lead to a lifelong interest.
      With that comes a thirst for knowledge and learning together with a greater understanding of the world we live in.

      Thanks again for your kind words!
