WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

OMG!!! You guys are AMAZING!!! I was dying laughing at the lab safety video. You truly know our students and the video was so culturally relevant to SCIENCE.

KATRINA BARKLEY,
ATLANTA PUBLIC SCHOOLS

When [kids] get to middle school they tend to wean off [science] a little bit. I think this is an excellent program to keep them involved.

I homeschool my boys and I have trouble with the hard stuff like Physics. They found these videos and we love them. Please keep up the great work.
