Science is so cool. Do you think the impossible just might be possible under certain circumstances? I recently came across two science, specifically mechanical engineering and physics, videos that are a must see for adults and a must show to kids.
Science is the acceptance of what works and the rejection of what does not. That needs more courage than we might think. ~ Jacob Bronowski, 1908 – 1974
Science Videos for Kids
If you read my blog, you know that I am mildly obsessed with tinkering with kids. For some reason I wasn’t much of a tinkering myself growing up. You’re never too old to learn something, right? I won’t say that I am nearly as good as my 5 and 4 year old are at tinkering and imagining but I work hard at it.
The man who created this video began taking photos of the engine as he stripped it simply to remember which part went where so he could rebuild it. 3,000 images later and we have our eyes on an amazing process! This video shows an engine being stripped down and rebuilt again. Fascinating to watch the pieces and parts unfold and come back together again. Certainly is enough to make me want to get my hands on an engine!
This man, Brian Cox, takes a look at physics in a most unusual way. He visits a vacuum chamber and simulates the conditions in outer space. Then he drops feathers and a bowling ball. You have to check out this video. What do you think happens when gravity disappears?
The video is bound to bring on questions from children that you might not be able to answer. You will certainly learn something from the video, and end up doing additional research to satisfy curious minds. Amazing stuff! I hope you enjoy!
