Science Please!

Top of page

Got a science question? Got a minute? The 26 one-minute video clips in the Science Please! collection offer humorous but rigorously accurate explanations of scientific discoveries and phenomena we encounter in our daily lives. Have you ever wondered... why do we see colours? What makes the wind blow? Why do some things float and others sink? What is sound? Why does soap clean? Each question is carefully researched and clearly explained through animated illustrations, archival footage and amusing narration. The wacky humour will appeal to 9- to 12-year-olds, while encouraging an interest in science. The clips are grouped together under five major themes, on two videocassettes. The boxed set also contains a poster illustrating and summarizing the scientific concepts. Science is cool!
