My kids do not love science, but I’ve noticed that when they watch shows related to science, they are very interested. It’s not that they don’t want to know how things work, they just need to see it and not read about it in a science textbook. I’m the same way, so I understand it.

Mythbusters is one of my favorite shows. The team takes common myths (urban legends) and tries to bust them. They prove them either right or wrong. One example is “can a mobile phone ignite gasoline fumes?” The guys on this show make science a ton of fun. You can tell they love what they do and they make science easy to understand.
5 Science Related Shows for Your Younger Kids
I love Ms. Frizzle. She takes her classes on the greatest science adventures. All 4 of my kids have watched The Magic School Bus. My favorite is when they get really small and go inside the human body. I learned a lot watched Ms. Fizzle take her class on field trips. So, this one can also be put up in the category for bigger kids too.
