Go Science by Library and Educational Resources
I have been a long time fan of Library and Educational Resources (a wonderful way to build a quality, affordable library in your home - I have!)
I was sent 2 volumes of the Go Science - DVD's to review.
From their website:
"Every time we learn something about SCIENCE, we learn something about our CREATOR GOD!
Even kids who claim an aversion to science will be engaged by the high-energy science demonstrations of Ben Roy! Ben teaches science methods at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and is the former director of a science program on television. With this expertise, Ben captivates, motivates, and inspires students to be excited about science, while providing effective instruction based on science phenomena. Each spectacular demonstration of physical or chemical science has a spiritual application and points to our Creator!
More information about Ben Roy can be found on his website www.gosicencezone.com and Facebook. "
Volume 1 in the Go Science Series is about Motion: Discovering the Laws of Gravity and Motion
Volume 2 in the Go Science Series is about Simple Machines, Sound, and Weather
Volume 3 in the Go Science Series is about Magnetism, Engineering, Electricity, and Design
Volume 4 in the Go Science Series is about Chemistry, States of Matter, annd Life Sciences
Volume 5 in the Go Science Series is about Air and Flight
Volume 6 in the Go Science Series is about Water, Space, and the Solar System.
Each demonstration ranges in time from 3 to 6 minutes.
Recommended for ages 6-14
These episodes were originally produced for a religious television show.
Available for $8.97 each, or as a 6 Volume Set (67 lessons) for $47.95
Check out a sample video:
The Bentz Test Laboratory loves all things science, especially science videos!
Go Science was a big hit! The younger testers especially enjoyed Ben Roy's presentations. I do feel that the science concepts were presented well, but the presentation style was geared toward a younger than 14 age group. That's great - little kids love science too!
This is a perfect summer activity - when it's too hot to go out to do science - why not do some "Go Science" together! My favorite part - Ben Roy points each and every lesson to the Creator God. It's a Bible lesson and a science lesson!

I was sent two complimentary DVD's in exchange for my honest opinion as part of the TOS Review Crew.
