Books and literature are great, but the newest medium for learning science is on TikTok! From watching experiments to hearing scientific phenomena finally explained, TikTok SciComm influencers have given us a glimpse into the fascinating world of physics and science with a wealth of videos highlighting the wonders of physics.
We’ve put together a list of the best physics-focused TikTok accounts that showcase these incredible experiments and explainers to learn in a fun new way.
Before you start, did you know we're on TikTok too?! Hop over and follow us at @geniuslabgear for fun science and chemistry videos!
Steve Spangler is a master of demonstrating fun and easy science experiments. Interestingly, Steve has always found an entertaining (and messy) way to make science enjoyable for everybody, including performing in person for Ellen DeGeneres herself! Head over to his TikTok or watch his appearance on Ellen's show. Either way, we’re pretty sure you’ll be delighted! Watch as he shows us how to conquer the balancing nail challenge in this video.

Imagine what running in space would be like.🤔You don’t have to imagine though, you can watch @astrosamantha show you exactly how it works! An astronaut of the European Space Agency, Samantha boldly goes where no TikToker has gone before! Hop over to her TikTok page and find out what life in space is like.
@astrosamantha How do you run in space? Happy #GlobalRunningDay #MissionMinerva #SpaceTok ♬ Run - OneRepublic
You might wonder what is Bernoulli's Principle? Wolf Science does a wonderful job of illustrating it with a practical, real-world demonstration utilizing just the air in his lungs and an incredibly long plastic bag. It does seem impossible right? Checkout his Tiktok video and see it unfold right before your eyes.

How do I not break an egg? Well, hold it just the right way. @incrediblescience demonstrates the reason behind this and other fun scientific phenomena. He does all of this quite dashingly with his golden magician’s coat delivering knowledge with alchemy. Is it magic or just science at work? It’s up to you to find out.
@incrediblescience Impossible to break an egg this way! #eggchallenge #eggdrop #scienceexperiments #learnontiktok #teachersoftiktok ♬ you broke me first - Tate McRae
You probably couldn’t guess what would happen if you placed a few little foil cups atop an electrostatic generator. This fascinating video from @atomstalk demonstrates just what occurs when the electricity is turned on. How lovely is that?

Is Jupiter regarded as a failed star? In her Tiktok response, @astrokirsten covers this by demonstrating the spectral signals of Jupiter and relating it to brown dwarfs. Amazing, right?
@astrokirsten All hail Jupiter, the lizard planet 🦎 #jupiter #todayilearned #space #astro #lizard ♬ original sound - Kirsten Banks
Neil deGrasse Tyson is a name you probably know. He’s an astrophysicist who shares endless fun science facts through radio and television like the one below where he explains the “speed” of gravity. Lucky for us he made the move to TikTok so check out his account!
