Bill Nye the Science Guy!



I remember browsing through the TV guide channel when I was 12 or 13 and noticing an educational science show for kids which played at the same time as some of my other afternoon favorites.  This science show was the same one we saw clips of at school during science class.  It's the one with a tall guy and silly ways to show experiments or facts.  You know who I'm talking about! It's none other than the famous Bill Nye the Science Guy! Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill!



Bill Nye definitely does a great job capturing the attention of the audience.  His show displays captivating images, interesting experiments, catchy sounds and a bit of humor.  All of these things together provide an enlightening and entertaining 30 minutes. 


My son loves to check out the DVDs from our local library.  A few of the DVDs we've borrowed include earthquakes, sound, oceans, and light/color.  After we check out our newest episode my husband makes a point to come home a few minutes early from work so he can sit down with Zachary to watch it. They both look forward to the show as well as their quality time together. 


Of course my 4 year old does not get all of the concepts in the show yet however the show has given him positive experiences and therefore a more positive outlook on learning about science.  There are some experiments you definitely should not try at home but there are many that are wonderful.
