I teach jr. high technology and it's nice to have decently produced movies to have students watch in case of a sub or to fill a gap or any other reason. This collection offers an excellent value for high-quality videos. Just because they're educational videos doesn't mean they need to be boring. This collection of Modern Marvels successfully captures the excitement of the technology itself to keep kids (and myself!) interested.

The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the selection seems a little random. If you're going to make a collection, ideally it would cover what would be the most pertinent topics, not random things like monster trucks or candy. But it's cheap enough that it's a minor qualm.

I bought these videos to share with my fifth grade students. I have used them when we are studying the industrialization period of our U.S. history, career information, and to answer the question, "How are they using math?" My students LOVE them. And happy students equates to a happy teacher.

Anyone who loves History and Technology will love these videos. Actually, even if you don't enjoy history, you still will love these videos. Very well put together with a nice mix of history and today's times. Great for all ages. Our favorite is the video of candy manufacturing. They are all educational and interesting.

I bought these for my 8th grade students and they absolutely love the videos. They are quite interesting and kept them intrigued the entire time. If you are looking for videos to play during testing or supplemental videos for your subject, math especially, these are worth the purchase.
