    Best Science DVD Series I've Seen!

    Real Imagineers using rollercoasters, water slides and thrill rides to explain concepts like potential and kinetic energy or the acceleration of a falling object. Not only do these Imagineering DVD's make the concepts perfectly clear, they actually cause you to start noticing science at work in the world all around you. A powerful teaching tool that's also lots of fun for adults, it makes science exciting and relevant. The host is young and appealing, a great role model for kids. The series is ideal for grades 5-9 but would serve a much wider group.
