Go Science

By

Can one ever have too much science or too many experiments?  My children certainly don’t think it’s possible, and I constantly feel like I have a wide gap in our science curriculum.  I’m always eager to fill that nagging space with solid material.

Go Science is a Creation based Science DVD Series, authored by Mr. Ben Roy, and created to supplement elementary and middle school science courses.

 

 

Mr. Roy has taught elementary and middle school, also serving as principal.  He has been awarded Teacher of the Year,  and maintains teacher certifications in two states.  He is a past director of a TV newschannel Science Theater, and continues to travel extensively with his live science shows.

Presently, there are 6 DVD’s in the Go Science  Series.  Running time per DVD varies from 29 minutes to 59 minutes.  Each DVD is divided into several segments, around 3-6 minutes each.  Each segment spotlights a specific experiment.  Ben Roy “captivates, motivates, and inspires students to be excited about science, while providing effective instruction based on science phenomena.  Each spectacular demonstration of physical or chemical science has a spiritual application and points to our Creator!” ~ quoted from the web page.  With purposeful intent, he teaches students to acknowledge that, “Every time we learn something about SCIENCE, we learn something about our CREATOR GOD!”


Regularly listed for $14.95 each – or $79.95 for the set of 6 – Library & Educational Services makes the Go Science DVDs available for just $8.97 each, or $47.95 for the entire set.  LES is a wholesale company, serving “resellers, educators, librarians, home educators, as well as church leaders such as pastors or directors of children’s ministries.”  They supply wholesome, educational books, DVDs, CDs, games, and more, at 30% – 70% off retail prices!

The Go Science Series is recommended for ages 6-14.  My 7 year old was the only one that honestly appreciated it.  There is just enough “action” to keep her attention long enough to gain a nugget of scientific information.  Everyone else thought they were far too juvenile to be engaging.  Although, Mr. Roy is quite knowledgeable and passionate about teaching science, his program seems dated, and lacks some of the depth, the how‘s and why‘s of the experiments, that is needed to hold the attention of an older student.  My personal recommendation is early elementary, possibly 5-10 years old.
