12 Amazing Demonstrations that Reveal the Magic of Science.

Watch, laugh, and learn from a master, and amaze your students with science magic!

Award-winning physics teacher Buzz Putnam shares his secrets to grabbing students' attention and making them think! Discrepant events are really just magic tricks for science class, and we've collected a dozen favorites. This kit includes 6 ready-made demos and instructions to make 6 more from common items. We've even included a Teacher's Guide and a CD-Rom video of Buzz himself, so you can perfect your own style and timing.

Demo example:
The Balloon Challenge presents students with a question; If the air valve is opened between the larger and smaller balloons what will happen? Intuition says the larger balloon would continue to inflate the smaller balloon until equilibrium is achieved. But a discrepant event is one where the outcome is not what you expect!
