Amazing Science! Volume 1

I love science experiments.  My boys love science experiments.  There is nothing cooler than interacting with God's creation and observing what happens.  As fun as it is, it can be very disappointing as well.  You pick an interesting experiment and gather the materials needed.  You carefully read the instructions and then reread them, just to make sure you understand exactly what you're supposed to do.  You follow the directions, and then....nothing happens.  What a let down!  I know I'm not the only homeschooling mom who has spent time explaining what should've happened during a failed experiment.

Amazing Science!,  a 2 disk DVD set from ScienceAndMath.com, helps solve this problem.  There are 23 experiments performed:

  1. Color Changing Milk
  2. Egg in a Bottle
  3. Exploring Air Pressure
  4. Build a Lemon Battery
  5. Inverted Cup of Water
  6. Candle Suction Power
  7. Amazing Magnetic Force
  8. Lift and Ice Cube with String
  9. Unburnable Money
  10. Matchstick Speedboat
  11. Cloud in a Bottle
  12. Reversing and Image with Water
  13. Floating Eggs
  14. Keeping Paper Dry Under Water
  15. Dry Ice Bubbles
  16. Balloon in a Candle Flame
  17. Ocean in a Bottle
  18. Build a Motor with Lights
  19. Simple Lava Lamp
  20. Invisible Ink
  21. Density Tower
  22. Soda Can Fizz
  23. Build a Motor #2
The science behind each experiment is fully explained by Jason Gibson.  He holds degrees in Engineering and Physics and worked as a rocket scientist for NASA. A complete materials list is given for each experiment, and the materials needed can be found at your local hardware or grocery store, if you don't already have them around the house.  Experiments are fun and engaging.  My boys were begging to do them after watching the videos, and I'm sure your children will be just as eager.  I was already excited  about this DVD, and then I saw the price.  It's only $19.95!  If you're looking for a fun way to add experiments to your science program, or if you need something to help keep your children occupied over the hot summer months, check out this program.
