His show, The Spangler Effectteaches viewers how to conduct the coolest science activities using simple items found around the house.

Spangler’s most visible online project to date is called SICK Science – science experiments presented in a short video format that challenges the viewer to figure out the science behind the wow moment. Spangler’s minimalist approach was the first of its kind to showcase a style that focused the viewer on the real science instead of a personality presenting science. The SICK Science brand and style of engagement has come to define Steve’s ability to connect with a wide range of audience demographics.
