Sometimes I'll review a product and I'll use it as part of "school" for the day. Not this. I was previewing it around 4pm, long after school was over for the day. My sons were walking through the room, stopped in their tracks and watched as the narrator was building a battery from a lemon. The next thing I know, they are bustling around the kitchen with a lemon (that I needed for a chicken dish that night--grrr) and getting everything they needed to make their own battery.
I think that's all the testimony you need.
With Volume 1, you'll get 23 step-by-step experiments presented in short videos (around 8-10 minutes). Materials are shown, the experiment will wow you, then Jason tells you the "how" and "why" science behind the fun. According to the company, "you'll learn about electricity, magnetism, heat, temperature, pressure, surface tension, buoyancy and much more."
I highly, highly recommend Amazing Science! Volume 1. I can't wait for more from the great folks at ScienceAndMath.com. In the meantime, I think I will check out their other DVD sets, which explore science and math instruction. See for yourself at this site.
