How can our kids know the truth of God’s creation? These interesting science websites are a great place to start!

One of the great things about being Catholic is how beautifully faith and reason work together.

Instead of being at odds, our minds and souls unite to enjoy learning about God’s wondrous creation.

Many great scientists were and are Catholic. You can read about some of them in this great book for kids, Brilliant.

As St. John Paul II wrote:

Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.

So how can we encourage our kids to “know the truth” of God’s creation? 

These interesting science websites are a great place to start! They’re perfect to explore over spring break or really anytime. 

1Frontiers for Young Minds

Frontiers for Young Minds is a unique, completely free kids’ science journal. It features articles in which top scientists connect directly with young reviewers to ensure their articles are clear, educational, and fascinating to read for young people. That sounds amazing!

2National Geographic Kids

The magazine is “designed to inspire and empower children to understand complex ideas through stories, games, and more,” and the website is abuzz with educational resources. 

3BBC KS2 Bitesize Science

Games and activities on this site help children understand various scientific concepts and processes.

4The Tech Museum of Innovation

This educational resource is meant to engage all people in exploring and experiencing technology and to inspire young people to become innovators in future technologies. Find out about computers, satellites, DNA, robotics, lasers, and more.


The Exploratorium, a hands-on museum in San Francisco, offers this website with hundreds of videos, apps, and activities on all kinds of fascinating scientific topics.
