Rock-It Science Videos

Age Range: 7-14 (with wiggle room, and fun for all ages)

First, I’d like to preface this review by saying I know the Founder of Rock-It Science. His name is John McChesney, and the kids fondly refer to him as “Mr. Mac.”  My sons took homeschool science classes from him for about 6 years. That’s how much his brand of science education appealed to them – they couldn’t get enough! 

So, I’m excited to tell you that you and your kids can watch some Rock-It Science Videos of classes and fun experiments for free!

When you get to the site you’ll see a menu of videos that include:

*Meet “Mr. Mac” – Find out who the quirky genius is behind these innovative science lessons.

*Dry Ice – Watch a series of experiments showing the amazing properties of Dry Ice.

*Air Pressure – Watch the video and then try some experiments in your own kitchen!

*What Happened to Japan’s Nuclear Reactors? – Get a kid-friendly explanation of what happened to Japan’s nuclear reactors after the earthquake and tsunami.

*How to Light a Match – Find out the safe way to handle matches, and use flames in science experiments.

*Crash Test Dummies – See how students (ages 11-16) build a device that will protect an egg during a crash.

*Global Warming – Hear and see Mr. Mac’s explanation of the “Greenhouse Effect.”

When you’re through watching the videos poke around the site to learn about the history of Rock-It Science, their mission, and read Mr. Mac’s blog.
