The lemon battery!


Of the experiments we’ve done so far, my girls’ favorites have been…well, they can’t really pick.  They have liked everything we’ve done.

The 2-DVD set is available HERE for $19.95 (list price is $24.95), or you can download all the experiments for $17.99. 

Want a sample?  Here’s the movie trailer and one of the experiments:



I like that Jason and his DVD make doing science experiments simple and fun.  In the past, experiments have gone by the wayside.  Not anymore.

The science experiment use materials that are easily found – no hunting all over town for a mysterious component.  We had many of the supplies on hand already.

The conversational tone of the DVD plus the other information he throws in, especially what happens if you alter the science experiment slightly, use different materials, etc.  And the fact that he reminds them of the necessary safety precautions!


I wish he’d make more DVDs with experiments!

I wish there was a printable list containing the supplies for every experiment.  Could be sent by e-mail when someone purchases.  Sure, it’d be easy enough to make – but what busy mom has time (or would think about it when she did have time)?


If you use these DVDs, there’ll be no getting out of doing experiments.  Your kids will pester you until you get the supplies to do them.
