Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this video is packed with fun, easy-to-do experiments and an extraordinary barrage of scientific facts. The wacky scientist offers accurate scientific explanations (about such topics as air pressure and the reflection of light) in simple terms, achieving clarity without sacrificing academic integrity. But beware, you're kids will want to do the science experiments -- and they need you there! The video is perfect for older kids and preteens, who will love doing the fascinating experiments at home (with adult supervision). The experiments will hook kids while they learn the scientific principles behind them. Families who watch this video may want to explore other scientific principles and discuss the importance of the scientific method: trial and error.
