Are your children bored with science?  Do you just need a change of pace?  Need a break from the regular school grind?  Well then, look no further than Go Science DVD’s hosted by Ben Roy.  Unlike, some DVD’s all the experiments points to the Creator of all and are based in Creation of the Bible.  The DVD’s are engaging and even held my rapt attention for most of the experiments, my 5 year old loved them while my 10 year old seemed like she lost interest as Ben talks like he is talking to a young child and not to a child who is older.  My 7 year old didn’t really give me her feedback, but she did watch and seemed intrigued.

 

The first DVD was ‘water, space, solar system’ and had the following experiments on it:

 

  • water disappear
  • boil water in a paper cup
  • properties of water
  • floating balls
  • as cold as outer space
  • make a rocket
  • living in space
  • solar system
  • centripetal force

The other DVD which is Volume 3 was titled ‘magnetism, engineering, electricity, design’ and had the following experiments and more:

 

  • monster magnets
  • a/c electromagnet
  • static electricity
  • Jacobs ladder
  • tesla coil
  • heat engine
  • plastic pre forms

 

These would make a great supplement or as a way to still get some educational time in if mom is sick or the day just needs a break away from ‘regular’ school.  Most of  these experiments are not really meant to be repeated at home – some could be however some need expensive and not easily obtained equipment – so it’s more of a watch and learn DVD than a give you the directions to do the experiment.  The explanations are included in his demonstration, so at first I was a little lost and had to rewind and see what I missed – but once I paid attention I realized he wrapped the explanation into the whole experiment.  I especially appreciated how everything he did related back to the Lord and one can tell that he loves the Lord as well as enjoys science.  If you’d like to see what others had to say about these and the other DVD’s visit the TOS Review Crew blog.
