Editorial Reviews

Forget the white lab coat and boring test tubes of your stuffy old school science class. Join teen hosts Paula and Andrew in three off-the-wall SciQ explorations, where science is fun and always an adventure! What's your science quotient? Underwater - Can humans live underwater? Things get fishy as Paula and Andrew explore the possibilities. No sun screen necessary!Snow - It's a wacky winter wonderland. But which is more fun... snow or ice? Our high-energy hosts warm up the wintry weather as they explore the debate. Flight - Move over, Wright Brothers! Paul and Andrew overcome gravity as they explore alternative flight with flying lawnmowers, race cars, witches, pigs, snakes and squirrels.

SciQ hosts Andrew, Paula, and Pemma are back in SciQ - Volume 2 as they tackle another three topics of scientific interest on their Smithsonian Channel science show. Proving just as popular in our home as Volume 1, the latest collection of SciQ episodes offers three 25-minute episodes instead of four, and is priced proportionately lower as well.

The general theme of the collection is moving through the elements. The trio delves into hands-on adventures in the realms of water, snow, and air as they venture into unusual learning settings and tie scientific concepts together with their discoveries.

In "Underwater" Andrew and Paula set themselves the task of exploring the concept of underwater living. Andrew wriggles through the water in a game of underwater hockey, and takes a spin in a dolphin boat, while Paula extends her breath holding abilities from 45 seconds to three minutes as she learns about the sport of free diving. Paula also straps on scuba diving gear to visit an underwater research station where a team of scientists (aquanauts) lives full-time as they study the coral reef. In Pemma's educationally informative segment, she explores the ways fish communicate underwater.

A lively (if typically infantile) debate between the rival co-hosts Andrew and Paula over which is the most exciting aspect of winter - snow or ice - leads into a varied exploration of the two. Paula takes the side of snow, Andrew the side of ice. Paula participates in catching snowflakes and photographing them, Andrew uses an ice auger to ensure that an outdoor skateway is safe for use, and makes a visit to a manufacturing facility that produces ice sculptures.

By Midwest Book Review on November 19, 2009
SciQ is a DVD series for young people that makes learning about science and technology fun. Each is packed with episodes in which teen hosts Paula, Andrew, and Pemma turn learning into an exciting adventure. Volume 2 (79 min.) has the episodes "Underwater" (where the teens learn about whether it could ever be possible for humans to live underwater), "Snow" (which explores the science behind snow and ice as well as the fun that can be had with both), and "Flight" (which teaches young people how humans dared to challenge gravity itself). A top pick as a curriculum supplement, addition to public library children's DVD shelves, gift for inquisitive young minds, or simply as a tool to show young people and teens that learning can be fun. Highly recommended.
