You don't have to be a scientist to appreciate the periodic science pun.
Believe it or not, dads aren't the only ones who are allowed to tell corny jokes. Whether you're into groan-worthy puns or clever one-liners, silly jokes are for everyone, and even if dumb humor is your favorite kind of humor, there are dad jokes out there that are actually pretty smart. For instance, you can't go wrong with funny science jokes... even if you're not exactly a scientist yourself. All you need is a basic understanding of biology, chemistry, astronomy, or physics, as well as an audience who might be willing to give you the (chemical) reaction you want.
Do you know why the restaurant on the moon got bad reviews? Or why biologists always look forward to casual Fridays? Or why the sun decided not to go to graduate school? If not, then we've got all the answers for you (and who knows — you might just learn something new along the way, too!). It doesn't matter whether you're an astrophysicist looking for a laugh, a middle school teacher looking for a way to entertain your students, or a dad looking for new material, because these nerdy science puns and jokes are sure to be a hit with just about everyone.
