Amazing Science!

Photobucket
My girls love science experiments but I have to admit that there are some weeks we don't have time to fit them in. Sometimes it isn't really getting everything ready it is because I need to figure out the how and why it works so I can explain it to them. The last couple of weeks we have been doing a lot of experiments using the new Amazing Science! DVDs from Science and Math.com.

Amazing Science! teaches fundamental principles of science through experiments. Every demonstration gives a complete list of materials and is viewed from multiple camera views. Every concept is explained in a step-by-step fashion making it easy to understand the science behind the experiment.

Amazing Science! volume one contains 23 experiments on 2 DVDs for $19.95.

I watched the experiments with all three of my girls ages 7, 9, & 11. Jason Gibson does an excellent job in his presentation. There is a list of items needed at the beginning of each experiment and Jason explains exactly how and why the experiment works. We all learned from his teachings and even my 7 year old comprehended what was going on. We completed almost all of the experiments but of course my girls had a few favorites: Coloring Changing Milk, Lift an Ice Cube with String, Ocean in a Bottle, & Surface Tension of Water. Everyone who came over had to see how Amber could lift an ice cube with a string.
