HowStuffWorks is more for the teen or young adult, so some supervision will be needed to direct the younger children to the right information.

The site uses illustrations, charts, and graphs to explain the detailed workings of everything from light bulbs to weather phenomena, space craft to submarines, nuclear fission to how ice cubes melt.

https://www.sciencenewsforstudents.org/

News items—such as the decline of the population of honeybees and how forensic science is used to solve crimes—are explained with children in mind. The site is more appropriate for Upper Key Stage Two pupils although younger children can benefit from it with some adult interpretation

Most major museums have children’s sections on their websites, and this one is definitely one of the most interactive ones out there.

Alongside this children can virtually visit the museums via the ‘Antcam’ and ‘Flesh eating beetlecam’- cool or what? A brilliant educational resource!
