Science on DVD

As you know we have a love of our local library. I’ve recently discovered a new science video series that we’ve enjoyed. Remember Bill Nye the Science Guy? He has a series of 30 minute entertaining and informative videos on various science subjects.

A name you might recognize from books but also has short, 30 minute videos with laughter and learning is the Magic School Bus series.  We’ve recently enjoyed videos on weather. I mean, I can teach weather just fine through books and discussion, but isn’t it more fun to watch a real hurricane on tv!! Conversely, a M.S.B. video on baseball focusing on friction and does a much better job teaching this concept than I could have. I know my limits in sports and science!
