About Science

About ScienceAbout Science brings inquiry-based, hands-on learning straight to the classroom with conceptual and experimental strength. The series provides discovery of basic concepts in physics, chemistry and earth science to more in-depth, involved topics inclusive of the usage of detailed, high tech equipment not always available for hands-on studies within the traditional classroom. Each single concept based lesson is brought to life by a real demonstration of the correlated experiment. These fast paced experiments will provide a basis for extended discussions and studies. Over 20 topics supported by demonstrations and experiments bring the scientific concepts to life for the student viewers. Well designed and suited for upper middle school and high school science classrooms.
