Go Science ~ TOS Review

We recently had the opportunity to review 2 DVDs from Library and Educational Services's Go Science series.

Volume 3 ~ Magnetism, Engineering, Electricity, and Design
Volume 4 ~ Chemistry, States of Matter, and Life Sciences
Volume 5 ~ Air and Flight
Volume 6 ~ Water, Space, and the Solar System
We chose to review volumes 3 and 4. 

Ben Roy Demonstrates Jacob's Ladder - Go Science DVDs Sample

“Even kids who claim an aversion to science will be engaged by the high-energy science demonstrations of Ben Roy! Ben teaches science methods at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and is the former director of a science program on television. With this expertise, Ben captivates, motivates, and inspires students to be excited about science, while providing effective instruction based on science phenomena. Each of the 67 spectacular demonstrations of physical or chemical science has a spiritual application and points to our Creator! “

LES videos are recommended for ages 6 to 14. However, I feel they are more geared toward ages 6-10.
We felt Ben Roy is certainly an animated and enthusiastic man who loves God and science.  Although many of the experiments were more directed towards older students, my 11 and 14 year olds felt he was way too enthusiastic for their liking and felt as though he was speaking to a room full of very young children.  We did however; enjoy watching him perform many different experiments.

You If you would like more information about Library and Educational Services and their Go Science series, stop by their website,

You can purchase the DVDs for $8.97 each or the whole set for $47.95. The running time for the DVDs we reviewed are about 43-54 minutes.
