Join PMK's junior hosts, Jay and Elisha, for a thrilling tour of underwater and sky borne transport in Radical Rockets. The action begins on a Trident nuclear submarine, where Jay walks over missile silos, visits the ship's nerve center (and even steers it for a moment), looks through a periscope, and learns what makes a vessel that is longer than two football fields dive and surface. Meanwhile, Elisha takes a fantastic ride on a two-woman sub, then joins her cohort at NASA for some disorienting training in weightlessness, spurious motion, and flight control on the space shuttle. Along the way, there are lessons in the chemistry of booster rockets and how astronauts find leaks via computer. There's also a chapter on remote-controlled model submarines, but for the most part watching Radical Rockets is like gaining exclusive, enviable access to the biggest and coolest machines in the world. --Tom Keogh

Even I can enjoy watching the shows.

Each segment is about half an hour long and the explanations are well done.

Format: DVD
This is one of those rare DVDs that is entertaining and captivating to a 2 1/2 year old, but educational enough to provide new information to much older kids. There are four episodes on this DVD: Submarines, Cool Cars, Boats, and Rockets. It is narrated by two preteens, but isn't annoying. They go deeper into concepts than most kids videos (talk about air and hydrodynamic pressure, explains how water locks work on canals, etc.). Even I can enjoy watching the shows.

If your child has moved slightly beyond the "Real Wheels" series, this is just great.

I have 4 kids ages 10 to 2 and they all love watching these movies. My oldest made the comment that usually movies like this are boring but this one isn't as "cheesy" as some others she has seen. I bought the whole collection and they haven't gotten tired of watching them yet!

I bought this for my 5 year old son, but my 3 year old daughter also enjoys it (though a bit long for her age). My son is really into rockets and space, but knows nothing of commercialized stories such as Star Wars and the like. So he's very intrigued by the actual inner workings of rockets and boosters and things that goes into space. Lots of great real life video, which is always a hit with his mom. The kids are a bit older than him, but he still enjoys it.

I first bought one Popular Mechanics dvd to explain electricity to our 3 year old grandson. After seeing it I purchased one for our 5 year old grandson. Since then I have purchased two sets of the six Popular Mechanics dvd's and they have entertained both boys for hours. These stories are told by children, for children, and are very educational and interesting. I would purchase more in a second.

All four episodes of this video - Boats, Submarines, Space Shuttles, and Cars - have really cool facts for children. From the inner workings of a spacesuit to how to make biodiesel, this video has the detailed information that my 5 year old craves! And the preteen presenters are not even particularly annoying for parents! I would recommend this to anyone looking for some real facts about real machines for their children.

My son loves each of the four programs on this DVD, though he probably prefers the one on rockets. As a parent, I appreciate the fact that the programs are intelligently done and the young actors seem genuinely interested in the science they're talking about.

This is an outstanding addition to my family's DVD library.

This is the first Popular Mechanics for Kids video we own and it has been a hit! My 5 year old son has learned a lot about how machines work and is even interested in conducting some of his own experiments like they do in the video. The pre-teen narrators are great and so is the content. It is engaging for both kids and adults.
