Rock-It-Science: Putting the FUN in Science We often hear about how our country is not producing enough scientists. There is now a big push to generate more interest among our youth, but all too often, the science classes that they take in school are focused on book reading and test taking. This does not inspire our kids to love science. In fact it often makes them dread it. That is why programs like Rock-it-Science are so important. John makes science come alive! He presents each lesson in the context of a story that engages a child's interest. Then he has the kids do HANDS ON experiments. This allows the students to feel like scientists -- to enjoy the excitement of guessing what might happen next and then seeing the results. Programs like Rock-it-Science are desperately needed because they will actually inspire a love of science. If we want more scientists in our country, then we need more programs like Rock-it-Science.
Rock it Science is a fun and interesting way for children to explore science through experimentation. Children listen to a fun story about Jack and Jill and then do an experiment related to the story. After the lesson is over children discuss what they found out, through their observations of the experiment, and end the story of Jack and Jill. It is a hands on way of learning important science concepts. The lessons in gage all types of students. In fact the lessons even in gage the adults observing the class.
