Science-mad 3-year-old is You(test)Tube star

Hooked: Freya got

to make a rainbow

WHILE other three-year-olds play with toys, Freya Mason is conducting science experiments and presenting them on her own YouTube channel.

The pint-sized professor has more than 1,000 fans around the world who watch her confidently explaining what she has found out.

Her experiments include using an upturned glass and candle to demonstrate a vacuum, and making gas from vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to inflate a balloon.

Wonder: Mum Sarah says Freya likes to see how things work

Mum Sarah, 35, said: ‘I’m not scientifically minded but she has always been curious about how the world works. She’s not into colouring and will say “That’s boring!”’

Freya got hooked on experiments at age two when her nursery class dissolved Skittles in water to create a rainbow.

The mini Marie Curie — the physicist known for pioneering work on radioactivity a century ago — also loves watching other children on YouTube. Her favourite is Ryan’s Toy Reviews, a seven-year-old who raked in £8million last year via clips of him playing with toys.

Now she has her own channel, Freya’s This Is Science. Seamstress Sarah, from Lutterworth, Leicestershire, said: ‘She likes to present and be on video.’
