Host Jason Lindsey, aka “Mr. Science” teaches hands-on, kid-friendly, science experiments!


PLEASE follow these safety precautions when doing any science experiment.

– ALWAYS have an adult present.
– ALWAYS wear the correct safety gear while doing any experiment.
– NEVER eat or drink anything when performing any experiment.
– REMEMBER experiments may require marbles, small balls, balloons, and other small parts. Those objects could become a CHOKING HAZARD. Adults are to perform those experiments using these objects. Any child can choke or suffocate on uninflated or broken balloons. Keep uninflated or broken balloons away from children.


Each Hooked on Science experiment is safe to perform with an adult present. If not performed correctly the experiment could be dangerous. Jason Lindsey, Hooked on Science, and ALL Hooked on Science affiliates expressly disclaims all liability for any occurrence, including, but not limited to, damage, injury or death, which might arise as consequences of the use of any experiment(s) online or on air. The guardian of the child and the performer of the experiment assume all the liability and will use these science experiments at their own risk!
