Go Science DVDs - a review

It is difficult to find Creation-based Science curriculum so I am always excited to get the opportunity to review any kind of Science that I know is Creation-based. Library and Educational Services offers a ton of great stuff. We were given the opportunity to review their Go Science DVDs!

The Go Science DVD's are designed for 6-14 year olds and are full of great experiments for the kids to watch and learn from. There are 6 DVDs in all:

- Motion: Discovering the Laws of Motion and Gravity
- Simple Machines, Sound, and Weather
- Magnetism, Engineering, Electricity, and Design
- Chemistry, States of Matter, and Life Science
- Air and Flight
- Water, Space, and the Solar System

We reviewed two of the DVD's and my younger two loved them. The instructor, Mr. Roy, has students from the audience help him with his experiments and he teaches, in a simple manner, the Science behind the experiment. It was perfect for my 5 and 6 year old to learn just that little bit of Science that they can understand at their ages. My 10 year old found them a bit juvenile for him and lost interest very quickly, though he did learn from them.

Mr Roy reminds us after each experiment that "Everytime we learn something new about Science we are learning something about our Creator, God!"

You can get a great deal on these DVDs through Library and Ed Services. One DVD is $8.97 or all 6 for $47.95. Take a look around Library and Ed's website too, there are so many wonderful resources for great prices!
