Sick Science Videos

Here is another summer recommendation for parents: How about choosing one or two “Sick Science” videos each week to watch, and then supervise your child performing the experiment?  These videos, produced by Steve Spangler Science, are short how-to videos for all kinds of science projects that can be done at home.  One of my personal favorites is “The Shrinking Chip Bag”, but that requires an old microwave and definite parental supervision.  For a less “electrifying” example, check out the video below on moving toothpicks with sound.  You can also find it at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLC02CFDE5690E4010
