Sinister Science: a New Fun Science Show for Kids

Sinister Science is not your typical science education series. They believe that learning should be fun, engaging, and sometimes a little bit mischievous. Their goal is to ignite a passion for science in children by combining educational content with elements of entertainment and surprise. Plus, it’s created right here in the GTA by Graduate students of the Centennial College Children’s Media program.

Diabolical Darcy and Dastardly Dan: The Villains We Didn’t Know We Needed

This short series is spearheaded by wacky duo Diabolical Darcy and Dastardly Dan who make science accessible to kids. By perfectly meshing sinister schemes with scientific facts, you’re immersed in an adventure that is easily duplicated at home. The episodes are crafted to captivate kids aged 6-9 all while engaging them in asking questions and experimenting to solve them.

Episode One for example finds Diabolical Darcy and Dastardly Dan in their secret lab teaching kids about how to harness the energy of a tornado. Kids think they’re making a tornado out of bottles, water, food colouring, washers and tape but really they’re getting a hands-on lesson of centripetal power. Getting their hands dirty is much better than reading about it in a book.

Imagine watching a video on how to make slime, only to have it suddenly turn into a lesson on the properties of polymers. Or picture yourself following a tutorial on how to make a volcano erupt, only to discover that it’s actually teaching you about chemical reactions. With Sinister Science, you never know what to expect, and that’s what makes it so exciting.

Join them on their mischievous journey and discover the wonders of science like never before!

    I have never heard of this before. My kids are still a little young but I’m going to have to save this to remember when their older.
