My team and I have worked hard to create hundreds of science demonstration and how-to videos available on YouTube and our SteveSpanglerScience.com site for teachers, parents and students. But we hear from a lot of teachers who are frustrated that YouTube videos are blocked at their school. They cannot watch a video to work on a lesson for their students and [...]
There's only one problem with these "best of" video lists... someone has to actually sort through all of the videos and come up with a list! Props to our genius video editor, Bradley Mayhew, for all of his editing magic in 2008. When the year starts out with 4,500 pounds of cornstarch and water and a cement truck on The Ellen [...]

Some of us grew up with fantastic science teachers. Mrs. Russell, Mr. Steward, and Mr. Landis are names that you won’t necessarily recognize, but they’re the three science teachers I’ve had in my entire lifetime.
