Teaching Science

A Multimedia approach to Teaching Science

Who said science has to be taught from only textbooks? The kind of science you remember best from your own childhood is probably those hands-on experiments. I can still recalling learning to make our own batteries from pill bottles, aluminum foil and a mixture of interesting chemicals. I can recalling being totally amazed that a real live battery could be created in this fashion.

We've included a variety of materials that you will find helpful in teaching science to your budding Einstein. You will find everything from coloring books to field guides, building kits, robotics and much more. This selection is intended to help spark your child's imagination and creativity, so check them out.

When I was a child I had a thing about clocks and everyone I knew would save their old clocks for me to take apart. It was my goal to take one completely apart and reassemble it - to make it work again. I never managed that goal but I had a lot of fun trying. So, instead of throwing out those old appliances, turn them over to the kids. They will be amazed at what they find inside and it just might spark their curiosity about many things science.
