I grew up watching Bill Nye and I'm so thrilled to see that my 3 year old is enjoying him, too! All of his DVD's are great. Interesting topics, creative experiments -- and a fun way for children to learn that science is everywhere!

He opens with a bike ride that shows just how far the planets are from the sun and their relative sizes. Lots of short 'skits' that highlight different facts make it easy to keep kids' attention. Our kids love Bill Nye the Science Guy!

My 8 & 9 year old boys LOVE Bill Nye. We homeschool, and I use Bill Nye's videos to enhance the chapters we are studying. For some strange reason, Bill's quirky style of teaching mundane topics (like Plants!) really hits the mark with the elementary crowd.

The videos are a little dated, but it doesn't seem to matter as they laugh out loud at Bill's zany antics and jokes. Thanks for making Plants so much fun, Bill!

I bought this in April 2015 to put away for September as part of my sons homeschooling cirriculum. Today I got it out for 1st day of school and put it in for science, it played maybe 4 minutes and stopped. I put it in my brand new laptop, it did the same thing and said defective dvd. I tried it in my bedroom dvd player again, same thing. Do not waste your money on this, for the price it is a big disappointment especially for your child who was looking forward to watching it and learning about planets that he loves.

I use Bill Nye at the end of every unit I teach. It's a great review of the material and he can do things on screen that i can't do in the classroom (like fly in a plane to show inertia...) The kids love his dorky humor too!!!
