1.0 out of 5 stars Not educational, not worth the money January 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
We love Bill Nye videos but this is not at all up to the quality we had hoped for or expected and DEFINITELY not worth the money. Is very very short-- about 10 minutes of educational content, no real teaching, and a lot of goofy little repititive slogans said over and over again. Introduces some math concepts by name (fractions, proportions, etc) but doesn't actually teach about them at all-- skip this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loves to Watch May 27, 2010
Verified Purchase
I have not actually seen this video, but my son (12) has watched it many times. He was excited enough about it to share it with his class, and he says usually when they watch things, the kids talk the whole time. Not so with this one. He says Bill is kind of obnoxious, but in a good and funny way, and makes the concepts interesting and easy to understand.
