WOW! "Do Try This At Home"

In working on the links for "Backyard Science" on youtube, I came across something mentioned recently by an acquaintance.  "Do Try This At Home" will definitely inspire Theo to many science antics.  Shoot, I may actually have to make the paper jet engine myself!

Fortunately, Mr.G, the genius behind the show, organized himself a nifty youtube page.  Go get inspired!

Here's the jet engine episode.  Super cool!

Backyard Science

Rosie is captivated by an Australian show right now called Backyard Science.  There are bunches of episodes on youtube, but like the Candian physics show Eureka, they are hard to get to from the main youtube page.  Also, one never knows what evils are lurking on youtube waiting for unsuspecting children.

Below are the links to the youtube episodes of Backyard Science for my kids', and your's, safe viewing pleasure.  I think they have Russian subtitling, anyone know what that language is?
